Employee Testimonials

Tevin McDonald.jpeg"It has been a year since I have joined SOME. Rather than sensing restriction or judgment, I wanted my clients to feel welcomed when they stepped into my office, just like I experienced acceptance within the SOME organization. Representation matters! I cannot wait to advocate for my clients for many more years to come!"

Tevin McDonald, MSW, LGSW - Clinical Setting Addiction Counselor at Leland Place


“I’m excited about the opportunity to be a member of the SOME family. As a new employee, I came in and was presented with an opportunity to take part in the Behavioral Health Services staff retreat. Immediately I felt genuine warmth and welcome from all the BHS staff. It was refreshing to meet and greet as well as gain additional tools while in a relaxing environment with the team. I experienced first-hand SOME’s staff development benefit towards continued personal and professional growth coming in the door. It is truly a pleasure to work with an organization whose staff embodies and breathes the SOME mission…on and off the clock.”
