State Rep. Julie Calley is joined by her guest, The Right Door CEO Robert Lathers, at the governor’s State of the State address on the House floor today.
Calley said she chose to invite Lathers because she wanted to recognize his impactful work in Ionia County before he retires in the spring.
The Right Door coordinates with a number of organizations including the state Department of Health and Human Services, the county’s jail diversion program and probate court, local health care providers, and area schools. Calley stated that under Lather’s direction, The Right Door has truly enhanced the efficacy of local behavioral health services.
“I applaud Robert Lathers for his emphasis on accessibility, recovery, evidence based practices, and reduction of stigma,” said Calley, of Portland. “I hope the entire state can pursue these key issues, as we strive to improve life for all Michiganders.”
