Building Dedication for Senator Thomas P. Morahan Wellness Center

Valley Cottage, NY – The Mental Health Association of Rockland County (MHA), Joan Silvestri, Chairwoman of the Board, and Stephanie Madison, LMSW, President/CEO are pleased to announce the dedication of the Senator Thomas P. Morahan Wellness Center on April 15, 2012 at 4:00 pm (rain or shine), honoring Senator Thomas P. Morahan and his family. Please join MHA, and other local dignitaries, in the celebration.

“On behalf of the Morahan Family, we greatly appreciate this honor MHA has bestowed upon my father,” said Ms. Silvestri, who is Senator Morahan’s daughter. “Prior to my father’s passing, he had found his calling championing mental health causes, such as Jonathan’s Law which gave mental health parity to all people. He thought the world of MHA and its work in Rockland County and was touched that such an organization would be dedicating a building in his name. He has been honored throughout the state, but this specifically means the most, as it is a vision he supported and is in his home county.”

The Senator Thomas P. Morahan Wellness Center at 140 Route 303 in Valley Cottage, NY houses the Mental Health Association of Rockland County’s services with easy access to all of the Rockland community by public transportation. MHA services 650-700 individuals per day with multicultural and multilingual capabilities to engage families in a culturally sensitive manner, respecting their client’s varied cultural identities reflecting MHA’s commitment to cultural competency.
