December 2017
Hey friends - hard to believe the year is winding down and a new one is nearly upon us.  The last couple of months have been a time of exciting growth for us here at PDA.  We have 3 new mental health centers joining our CommonGround Software community and another 2 centers are in training. Recovery Library is flourishing with many new first episode psychosis specialty teams joining us. And CommonGround Academy is jumpin’ with one State Hospital completing the Academy, 5 additional Academies underway and a new Academy for nurse health navigators beginning in January. Thanks for a wonderful year. 
As always, we invite you to join our Conspiracy of Hope.

What's PDA up to this month?
Two more CommonGround Academies
On December 6, Missy Rufo (Training and Development Specialist at PDA) and I were in State College PA to conduct a mid-session, face-2-face class with current students in our CommonGround Academy. Most of the 8 classes in the Academy are conducted via webinar but occasional face-2-face sessions really help us develop a vibrant learning community. We are currently conducting one Academy for peer specialists and one for clinicians from around Pennsylvania. The Academy is sponsored by our great partner, Community Care Behavioral Health.
