Why CMMHC being a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) is a big deal!

Richard Lee, chief executive officer of Woodland Centers in Willmar, will assume his new role at Central Minnesota Mental Health Center on Feb. 1.

"Woodland Centers is a very similar kind of agency," Lee said. "But Central Minnesota Mental Health Center is twice as big."

Lee said his role with Central Minnesota Mental Health Center will give him the chance to develop, maintain and strengthen relationships with stakeholders in the industry, an opportunity he did not have in Willmar.

"In a smaller organization, a fair amount of your time is spent in day-to-day management. In an organization twice as big, there will be less of that and it will allow me to focus on being the face and voice of the agency," Lee said.
