“Every day we see the plight of far too many children, families, and adults who are forced to linger in acute states of crisis in hospital waiting rooms across our region for hours to days due to the systemic crisis that prevents us from providing a rapid, effective and recovery-focused crisis response,” states Shannon Higbee.
CEO of Recovery Options Made Easy, Shannon Higbee, testified before the Office of the Attorney General’s Mental Health Livestream Hearing last Wednesday, January 18th, 2023. On behalf of mental health challenges for mental health needs, she represented four Western New York peer-run organizations, Restoration Society (Buffalo), Community Missions (Niagara Falls), Liberty Resources (Rochester) and Recovery Options.
