Pat Deegan Visits Dickinson Center

On September 24, Pat Deegan founder of CommonGround software, visited Dickinson Center to discuss how the program is being used there. She said she met "the most amazing peer specialists, incredible leadership teams and psychiatric care providers at Dickinson Center and Beacon Light Behavioral Health."

Thank you to Pat and all of the staff who attended the meeting.

In 2018, Dickinson Center’s peer-run decision support center opened its doors and began using, CommonGround, a web-based application that helps people prepare to meet with psychiatrists before their appointments. (Pictured: CommonGround Software Founder Pat Deegan centered around the DCI team)
