Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General

William J. TenHoor, MSW


“Be careful what you wish for” is an admonition many consumer organization leaders have heard before. It is often heard when your organization is facing a particularly difficult problem or crisis, such as a funding cut or the departure of a valued employee. Upon reflection, you realize your organization has come a long way. It has an excellent mission, a laudable set of goals, employs a good group of people, and has a reasonable operating budget. Yes, you got what you wanted. But given all the obstacles that you had to overcome to get to this point, you question how you will ever achieve the noble future that continues to beckon.
