First community mental health center in the US to celebrate 2015 mental health awareness day with yarn, color and messages of hope. How's that for a conversation starter? My name is Leslie DeHart. I currently work for Central Oklahoma Community Mental Health Center in Norman Oklahoma. We actually were the very first outpatient community-based mental health center in the country. We have rolled with all of the changes that have come through the system in the last 50 years and are ready to step into the future. We are undergoing a remodel of several buildings after they were damaged in storms a few years back. By next spring all of our building projects should be complete. I have challenged the staff here as well as my friends in the crochet community to help me yarnbomb a gazebo that sits at the heart of our campus. We are going with shades of green because our psychosocial rehab group has named themselves Team GREEN (Growth, Recovery, Education, Empowerment, New Beginnings). We want to celebrate the movement of recovery and celebrate the people we serve.
