The Three Rivers College Behavioral Health Support Program honored Angela Rommel as its Practicum Supervisor of the Year on May 5 during a ceremony that included special presentations of proclamations to help end stigma against mental health.
“Students have described Rommel as having one of the biggest hearts and someone who cares beyond measure. Rommel has a reputation for going above and beyond for her clients, colleagues, and the students she has mentored during their practicum experiences,” said Corey Reynolds, Three Rivers College Behavioral Health Support Program Coordinator. “She passionately shares what she has learned from her lived experience which has inspired others to focus on recovery. Rommel is an excellent example of what a true behavioral health professional is, and she is more than deserving of this recognition.”
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, which is a time to focus on ending mental health stigma.
At the ceremony Mayor of Poplar Bluff, Shane Cornman, presented a signed proclamation destigmatizing mental health for the community of Poplar Bluff.
Three Rivers President Dr. Wesley Payne presented a proclamation declaring Three Rivers College and its external locations to be a stigma free campus.
