General Meeting

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Honorable Milton Mack,

Last month at the General Meeting that featured Professor Stephen Taylor of University of Michigan, several people in attendance had legal questions and questions about Guardianship.  Based on the desire to have someone come to our General Meeting to do an "ASK THE LAWYER" session, NAMI Metro has secured the Honorable Milton Mack to come in and answer many of the questions people may have.

Judge Milton Mack has vast experience as a Chief Probate Court Judge and has worked tirelessly to improve the mental health system and the mental health code in Michigan.  He will be able to answer some of the Guardianship questions people were asking and will also give a review of pending mental health legislation.  In addition to updating the membership on what the legislation is but also on what needs to be done.

Beverly J Patchett receives 2015 ATHENA Award®

Nominees were honored by community and business leaders as the 2015 ATHENA Leadership Award® recipient is announced.  The Business Women’s Network and the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce presented the 2015 Athena Award to Beverly J. Patchett on September 16, 2015 at Club Venetian in Madison Heights. The ATHENA Leadership Award® is an international award presented by local Chambers of Commerce to a woman -or man- who is honored for professional excellence, community service and for actively assisting women in their attainment of professional excellence and leadership skills.

A note from BJ Patchett….

It is my hope that this award will inspire others to contribute time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in their communities and actively assist others, particularly women, in realizing their full leadership potential. Providing an environment where women’s accomplishments and contributions are valued will help to clearly define role models for others to emulate. I’ve always felt that success is not a goal to attain but rather a way of life. Today I firmly believe we will best serve our communities if we continue to create leadership opportunities for women and encourage the empowerment of women leaders.


I salute my fellow nominees for the personal and professional support they have provided to our community

Empowerment Professionals Announces
Private Practice Incubator Program

Shortly after opening the doors at Empowerment Professionals I was well aware of the need as a solo practitioner to have interaction with other mental health professionals in the community at which time I founded the Oakland County Private Practice Network and Support Group (OCPPNS). Difficulties during early startup of my practice lead me to write Solo Private Practice: A Step by Step Guide to Opening a Private Practice, Self-Published 2004, Royal Oak, Michigan with a revised edition released in 2006. A seminar called How to Start Your Own Private Practice was developed during 2004, shortly after authoring Solo Private Practice, and a new outreach was born. Working with our Private Practice group members, those attending our Private Practice seminars, and others calling for assistance it became apparent once again that many mental health and substance abuse professionals have interest in starting a private practice, but do not understand the many processes that are required to start up and succeed at their new endeavor. With that in mind during 2015 I expanded my outreach to include hands on support and guidance with an innovative approach to obtaining the necessary skills to succeed by adding a Private Practice Incubator Program. Please see our “Services Page” for details.

Empowerment Professionals is proud to announce the startup of our Private Practice Incubator Program. Under the guidelines for this new outreach individuals attending our “How to Start a Private Practice” seminar may be considered for participation. Each year a participant will be selected as an unpaid intern, under contract, for one year. At the end of their contract year they will have the opportunity to move on to their own practice and a new intern will be considered. During their time at Empowerment Professionals interns will have an opportunity to learn clinical best practice methods along with effective networking and advertising. By the end of the year they should have a strong presence in the community which will help them build a stronger foundation for their new practice and a skill set that compliments and supports a healthy community.

Individuals interested in this program may contact Empowerment Professionals and request a copy of our guidelines for participation.
