Galen and her team developed ‘What’s Up? Wellness Checkups,’ a successful and highly regarded program for Nevada County’s Behavioral Health Department that screens and counsels hundreds of high school students for depression, anxiety, and suicidality. While Galen has a deep understanding of how to build, sustain, and evaluate effective community programs, she also brings her passion for wellness to the table as a member of our county’s Mental Health Services Act Steering Committee. I’ve known her as an excellent organizational change consultant, but also in her capacity as a program manager for Nevada County’s Public Health Department where she oversaw all of our health and wellness programs and collaborated closely with the Behavioral Health Department, seeking to bridge the community health and mental health silos. She is a strategic thinker, an effective team leader, and a trustworthy collaborator. — Rebecca Slade Interim Behavioral Health Director, Nevada County
