We have no network announcements. Item b
Do we have any board member announcements. Um, before we move to the certificate of recognition, I would like to make a comment that there's been quite a few of our students in high school committing threat calling making fake threats. Ferndale was just recently closed prior to that it was another high school. Schools have been hailed recently on excessive lockdown. Some of them are we can't take any threats likely it was reported on the news today that two students were Ferndale was apprehended. It was a young lady and a young man they both 1516 years of age. It started out as a social media threat. She put a thread out then she said she made the comment that it didn't matter that it was that it was told or share with your parents that you are still going to die. So the school was closed on Monday. That's the children's students resume school on Tuesday. Then it was a note left in the bathroom. So you all know my position on our youth as being proactive. Being the advocacy of creating a safe place talking to our students. We are great at responding to tragedy but we have to start the conversation getting our students involved and start being proactive. This copycat is it's not funny at all. It is dangerous. It's very dangerous. We cannot have another OXPHOS Oxfords situation happen that cannot happen. Now I would like to move on to the certificate of recognition. Thank you Thank you Madam

architectural and engineering services a seven mile project for what's your pleasure?
I'm sure discussion.
Yeah I was trying to skip down to that non kidding.
Yeah. Um, Joe wonder if this is something that we need to reconstitute the building committee to really get into more details. I know there's some discussions that could committee about the scope of services and what they will do environmental proceedings and also some other discussion about how we can make sure that Wayne County residents to some priority jobs and things as well as just ongoing construction I would like to recommend that if you decide to do that to form a committee and
the executive committee because we you know, we've had some conversations back and forth. Off the buildings committee.
You know, I trust and that's one of the reasons that I stepped off because of your institutional knowledge savings committee.
I think you're very do you do a lot of detailed review and I told you that in the past I think that the committee and the members of the executive committee, y'all do a fine job. Dating stuff. I've always spoken up for Wayne County residents. I think it's executive committee. I trust you all to do that. That's it. McNamara so I got to ask the question. It's a guaranteed maximum that we're going with speak into the microphone. I can hear you here okay. So where are we at? Question one more time. How are you Bill? How are you building this? How are you building? What? So right right now this?
Could you please introduce yourself?
I'm sorry. Mike maski, Director of Facilities. I apologize. Right now. This is just for the architectural and engineering services. We put an RFQ out for it. We vetted we had three proposals come in, we've edited it basically off of fee schedules experience and then just their general resume chose Tetra Tech. She had a set of parameters, or crisis center. We asked for a 50 bed minimum. And a design that incorporated crisis services was stabilization and residential. And they were the most qualified when
I'm actually speaking to what Mr. Parker was talking about when he was talking about the the idea of having a building committee and I have a feeling what you're doing is you're going towards you having the plans be developed. Giving the plans to this the contractor that we've already picked having him bid out to wholesaling and then having them sign up for what's called a guaranteed maximum contract, which is what I think you guys were going after. Yeah,
well once the once the drawings are complete, we will competitively bid it and then we'll have we'll have obviously we'll have a budget beforehand, but we'll have a whatever whatever the
time, there's gonna be a lot of trade offs. And a lot of long discussions that this group has to you have to Well Do you have a you know, you have a packet that thick already, we could never get into it. And I think that it'd be a good idea to happen. Just because there's are a lot of long questions, I get pretty deep, do a lot of things anyway, and I wouldn't be for it because I know what which way you're going and I've been around building these things for a long time. And I know they can go south on you.
Chill. And just just for clarification, I mean, you're talking the design all the way into construction. Are you just talking I'm talking about the fact
that maybe we should have a building committee that meets on a regular basis? Maybe every other month? You guys tell you where you're at and show you the schedule values, they say they're here and here. They were approving this much in extras. We basically have that knowledge. And if there's something that looks like it's going real sales then we can alert the board.
I'm sorry, that would be an eye for it. So Okay, nevermind, Commissioner
prior to Mr. Doar. Thank you, Madam Chair.
I distinctively remember this conversation before and I think that's one of the reasons why the dissolution of the building committee took place because this matter would be going specifically to the executive committee in terms of those concerns that you just expressed. Mr. McNamara and we I have no concern in terms of the formation of a building committee, but I'm just saying that part of the reasons why the building committee was dissolved was so that you would I mean, we had already reached a point where there was an agreement that this building would be constructed, every matter going forward. The executive committee will have that responsibility of reports as we move forward. So I guess we are right back to where we were when that decision was made. So I'm sorry,
sorry. No, I'm Thank you very much, Chairman. Chairman.
So I guess at at the end of the day, you know, if the concern is having the building committee so that the executive team and leadership will report specifically as to the progress of the building, I mean, Madam Chair, obviously that rests within your domain to make that decision. On that point,
my my point actually is at the building committee, I believe that the executive committee would become weighted down with the minutia that is building a building. That would be my concern. So you will want to reinstate or would want to reinstate the building.
Yes, Commissioner can
I'm sure I moved to reinstate the building committee to the duration of this project.
That's been properly moved and supported. Do we have any additional discussion?
All those in favor, please
All right. Have anyone oppose? Any abstentions?
Thank you, Mr. Mike. Guys have it. Yes, sir.
Like recommended. This particular island 2327 We refer to the building permit
Can I ask is there any time sensitivity on Yes, absolutely. There is. Yes. I'm
imagining bringing this to the board when we dispose of this and moving or any of the activity that is associated with what you all describe under this contract that will happen all of that would go to the buildings to make sure
none of this is discussed. Yes, mister. Yes, Mr. Parker.
No executive committee just came up there and there is no contract. The company now they said they were gonna develop that based on the scope of services that had been developed with that we didn't see at that particular meeting because it wasn't available to us at CES scope of services here and I guess that's what it reflects. But there hasn't been particularly raised the whole thing about us doing some things in the construction that will be environmentally conscious. You shouldn't just build a building for the sake of building or rather do some things that maybe a friendly environment. And also, I think that we should look at how we can make sure Wayne County residents have opportunities and jobs here since is predominantly their funds that have gone into it. So there's just a number of areas I don't think we could take up where we did not take as we prefer and timewise you're gonna miss opportunities.
If I may, Madam Chair. So if I may, Madam Chair. Yes, this particular board action has nothing to do with what Mr. Parker just shared. Or here. This is specifically as to the architectural work, those those the scope of service that's been described in the board action, just like every board action that comes before this committee, you get just that you do not get the full breadth of the public of a contract. That has never been the case. In terms of matter brought matters brought to the board with the building committee. I mean, we can certainly have the discussion as to some of the things that you know, may be asked for but there's also you know, price that goes with those things, inflation and all of that these are concerns in terms of that will always be there. So I think this particular board action, though, does not go to the matter have been shared by Mr. Parker here. This is specific as to the architectural work,
Madam Chair, sold the
items. So I'm I want so for clarity, Mr. Parker would like to have board action 2347 to go to the building committee. And you wanted to be a part of the building committee as the drafting of the architectural plans are actually being drafted. The as to I list a once in demands, is that making sure I'm understanding?
I mean, I think that there are some things in the design the building, that once you design them, it's hard to come back and say now let's do something
or the chair. Open?
Yes. So yes, a tiny town in order to have a firm to actually draw up the plans. This particular contract would actually have to be approved with respect to vetting the plans themselves on the building committee. That's a separate matter and I think that's what Mr. Doar was trying to explain.
that was first, Madam Chair, I move approval of the contract.
So you move
in approval for the contract. Are you are you moving approval to for the contract to go to the building committee,
this contract and they also be known that all of the activities associated with this contract would be reported under discussion of the buildings. In any action that might come from that subcontractors, O'Neill's other items, would then go to the buildings committee and things come back to this board.
So we have a motion.
I have a question then.
One second. We have a motion and support. So we're still under discussion. Mr. McNamara.
Yes, let's go to the direct contract. Last line says de when is requesting approval of this contract in our mouth? Not to three $3.2 million. However, the architectural Insurance Services will not exceed 8% of the total of the construction costs 8% of the total would be 5.3. There's a $2 million difference so that you're assuming they could go up in value. Is that am I reading that correctly?
Mr. Massey to the podium, please.
Like my husky director of facilities. The difference so the 8% was was a budgeted figure that we had in there. We're projecting based off of the conversations that we've had. It's going to be right around that that $3 million mark. But it's things change as building footprint changes because we don't have a set square footage yet because we're still kind of defining the budget. So that number could go up depending on the size of the building.
Okay, so proving this contract today will give us Tetra Tech and then at that time, should the Board want to set parameters on what they want to see in a building which is good, then it could cause us to go up but you're prepared to spend up to 8% on architectural engineering, which by the way, is pretty low it is which is $2 million dollars more than you're asking for here.
Yes. I have no more questions. Okay, so there is a motion, it's been supported.
Do we have any additional discussion? So the contract so the the motion is for the contract to be approved, and not go to the building committee, but for this closure. Every step of the way would be would be relinquished to the building committee. This department.
We satisfy sir. No.
So all those in favor, please say aye. Aye. We have anyone that oppose
Any abstentions? Motion carries board action
2348 cm H

item number eight the board committee reports for chair report. Update on Detroit Wayne board vacancy from Wayne County Miss Blackwell.
Blackwell chief of staff.
We do have a individual that's been nominated from the wayne county executives office to fill the vacant board seats left by Miss Michelle Jawad. Miss Karina been tuned Z has been nominated and I believe it's going to Wayne County committee the whole committee the whole tomorrow. Miss Pinto, Lindsey is was presented to HHS last week two weeks ago and was slated to go tomorrow. misprint jersey is a resident of Northville and is the CEO of adult services over at Detroit Medical Center. So I will keep this body apprised as to how that goes
tomorrow. Thank you.
Anyone have any questions for Miss Blackwell?
Thank you, Miss Michaelia
number two, the updated CEO incentive compensation objectives for 2020 to 2023. This the CEO incentive objectives we actually had a meeting Monday, myself Mr. Doa, as well as Mr. Kindly we started a draft. So I'm pretty sure we're gonna have a final copy of the draft. And I believe we're actually on target.
Because I'm to Tom.
Jodie, kind of the Director of Human Resources at Detroit with integrated health network. Madam Chair, you are correct. We did indeed meet Monday immediately following executive committee, currently working on revisions to the draft discussed on Monday, and you'll have those updates by close of business tomorrow. Both you and Mr. Doar.
Appreciate it. Thank you. So it was a lengthy discussion. It wasn't too long. I told Mr. Doar, that the bar was set extremely high. So but we were very proud of the previous work that he has done and accomplishment and we look forward to the next fiscal year are doing even bigger and greater things.
just indulge me for a bit here. To me just step back just the formation of the building committee. When do you anticipate that that will be done? And the reason why I'm asking is that internally, we meet every week about this building and these buildings. They are decisions that are made every week in terms of the operational piece around this. And so the formation of this committee matters going into this committee is going to affect a whole lot of things with movement on this project here. And so part of my concern is when is this building committee be formed, how often this committee is going to meet because of decisions about this building is going to you know, there's gonna be a lot of moving parts
one moment Mr.
I'm not gonna speak for other people, and if they want to chime in, they can, but I don't see this as a micromanaging committee. I think I see this as okay, what are you doing? Where are you going? Why are you doing it this way? Just let us know. And if we see you taking a left, we think that the rest of us are supposed to go and write we may chime in. I will see the building committee has the power or any subcommittee to make policy only this board does. So I don't I don't think you should do what you think is right. And you prepared to explain to us what it is and, and well, but there's so much detail in this. You would be you'd spend an hour two hours probably with executives. You wipe out all their time and surely don't want to wipe out the full boards time and we're here long enough.
Commissioner can lap
I'm sorry. Mr. McNamara were you done? Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
As the maker of the motion. That's exactly what all
committees do. It was going to report out, keep me aware of certain things and then when the committee is convened, and when you're in session report and y'all will have dialogue and discussion that direction, but the direction that you on a day to day. We've already approved the contract. So already mentioned a certain different type of recommendation comes into building Thank you, Mister. Thank you. Okay. All right. Discussion.
That wasn't part of my number three, the board committee scheduled for 2023 I believe we made some adjustments at the executive committee meeting. I believe Miss Black Shire was sent out a revision. I'm sorry, you're gonna send out an update.
So Madam Chair Smith attached to the agenda is a copy of the 2023 schedule with the changes that were recommended are made at the board executive committee meeting. The changes only affected the finance committee meetings that the January 17 meeting is going to be on a Tuesday and it'll follow the executive committee and then the May 15th meeting because of the net con conference will also follow the the executive committee meeting as well. The other dates are the second Mondays of the month instead of the third Monday. So I just want the board members to be aware since your meetings are typically the third Mondays for the board executive committee meeting, and those are in red. So when you see red, that means there's a change.
Okay, thank you.
So board please, please update your calendars as soon as quickly as possible.
Item number four, the metro
region meeting Macomb County is hosting. That's January 26 2023. If you can attend please do so in contact Miss Black Shire. Add on number five the update on the Community Mental Health Association of minutes of Michigan. I was ecstatic. Yes, let's have private class for I miss Dora Brown. She was elected to the state of Michigan as I trigger. This is like a great honor. I was actually you know some of us were able to be present but I gave a big shout out and kudos to the 18 Ms. Black Sharon Miss Carmen. Ms. Blackwell it was all hands on deck. It was you know as they say the girls rule the world sorry, gentlemen, but that was the movement. Mister I was very elated to see but especially for Mr. Parker. He's been part of this committee in mental health for a long time and this is the first time someone of our region to be represented on this on that board.
So I believe our treasurer should say a couple of words. This you know 235 10

Debbie Stabenow was there. It was some. It was legislation. There was a lot of support about mental health. Just this past election. This is the first time in 40 years that the Democrats have actually controlled the state of Michigan. So I'm very hopeful that that mental health would be protected.

Thank you so much is me thank you so much. Madam Chair. I'm going to be brief here. I think some of the stuff I had to talk about our Finance Chair took some of that some of those those those goodies there but first if you don't mind me just talk a bit about politics. i Everything is always politics even when you think it's not. So of course, last Tuesday was the big election night and certainly a significant change in Michigan politics as far as on all fronts. And I think you can squarely say now that the Democrats are in control of all fronts and Michigan government that's including the Supreme Court includes, of course the governor's office, the Ag Secretary of State, I mean you you name it and of course, both chambers of the house. I mean both both chambers of the legislature he talking about the Senate as well as the house. narrow margins in the Senate right now you have a 20 to 18 advantage the Democrats have there the same is true in the house 56 to 54. And in both of those chambers, you know you need at least 20 votes in the Senate to get anything move in in terms of passage there. On the House side I believe Mr. McNamara correct me if I'm wrong, my pick is 50 that you that you need to get things moving so that so there's a certain there is indeed in matters a big deal when you talk about control of those of those chambers. And as I believe the chair alluded to as far as the Shirkey building the Wi Fi bill. My understanding is that prior to be election there that Senator Shirky, the majority leader had a meeting with the folks at MDHHS. He and Mary wife are trying to move certain things along. And of course, because of Tuesday's event there. Everything has been either put on hold or certainly isn't going to go forward. The governor has no incentive right now to act on anything that will be brought to her and certainly have members in the chambers that are not going to take that risk to act on anything that Republicans will will attempt to push. I do want to make this clear though that regardless of who've been in control, D one has been able to do very well. I mean, you know you don't bring 60 million into an organization, you know, wow, the hours are in control of our gardens and good relationships there. So whoever been there we've been you know, having those relationships and we want to maintain that going for Representative Joe Tate is going to be the leader there in terms of the house and on the Senate side. Senator Winnie Brinks is going to be your Majority Leader. Both of those are some historics in terms of first African American male of course to be too ahead the house there and the same is true first woman on the Senate side. So those are some significant moves there. The importance right now as I you know, share with some folks over at the CMH side this morning is that we don't have to play this defense that we've always been playing we can finally go on some offense now and to actually put some, you know, things before the legislators to drive as to how we see behavioral health going forward in the years to come. You know, if CCBHC been such a huge part of business to come as we move forward. Certainly would like to see that become codify where the PHP slash CMH SP which identifies us could incidentally be made a CCBHC. So those are just some of the things to keep in mind. They're on moreso of the home front as we talk, stability of the network, you know, significant dollars have been poured into the network to make sure that we are able to maintain you know, services and as well as our partners are in a position to hire and retain folks. There's a shortage of workers stood out, no matter the industry you're in, but certainly to be able to put in some extra dollars into those businesses have been helpful. And we have seen that even across our children's services, as well as some of our adult services as well, when folks have the extra dollars to hire people. Because now is an employers market, you know, or any employees market, I should say. And so folks have choices as to where to work and as such, as we talk on the just more of the financial business there you know, as Miss Brown alluded to, stability letters were sent out for just about every book of business that we have here. Finances now evaluating some of those are all of them, I should say, to determine as to stability payments that will be pushed out to the network. And that's when I say all fronts including STD, Children's Services, adult services, residential services, you name it is a part of that construct there. When we talk about on the clinical side of behavioral health services, our behavioral health home opiate health homes, those numbers are continuing, are continuing to grow, which is a good thing. Because it means that we are serving more people within a certain umbrella of services. And so we're going to maintain that as we move forward. You know, the public health emergency is coming to an end. And that's going to have a huge effect on folks who we provide services for as a whole there are going to be about 700 Folks, seven or 8000 people who are going to be affected by this by no means am I saying 700,000 of those are all our folks, but certainly there's going to be a percentage that will be affected and the public health emergency just a quick explanation here when it was when it was announced. Some of the tight constraints that are sometimes put on things were relaxed or loosened so that folks can receive services readily. And so of course with that, coming to an end, certain folks are not going to qualify for those services consumed or so now some decisions have to be made, whether we're going to use some general fund dollars or you know, push for some grant dollars in order to make sure that folks who desperately need those services that that continues have for them. And so that is the case, just to brief things, and then I will move on and be ready for questions. As we talk about partnerships with health plans. The three health plans that we've been working with things have been going very well in terms of, you know, just being able to see in real time services for folks that we both serve on the physical health and behavioral health side with one of our partners, we have more than 10,000 folks in common that we are doing this for another partner, just about little more than 3500 I would say you know and and so those are all, you know, some good projects there are finally and I'm going to try to segue this as best as I can see when is developing an app of its own and that app you know with the power of your cell phone will give folks the power to access any and all of our services just by using their cell phones and being able to access that app. The same will be true for folks who are our members they'll be able to access their their health records. This is done on the physical health side. I know that I have a Blue Cross so certainly you know to be able to do something like this I think is tremendous. In terms of just an update here on both both buildings. Things are going very well over at 707. Milwaukee there in terms of our care center. I keep pushing Mike and Brooke and the rest of the folks as to that building being completed by early spring but every time I mentioned early spring Brook looks at me kind of funny to remind me that it's going to be probably closer to the summer time than early spring but I'm going to keep pushing maybe, Michael we can get that generator a little sooner than the weeks that were quoted. And finally our admin building. No, we don't talk much about that building there. And you know, but construction is going very, very well with that and I cannot wait for both buildings to be constructed because I think it will really show the progress that the organization has made, you know, through the support of this board, the people we serve the provider network, and I just think that it is just one of those, you know, significant steps that an organization takes so that when we look back, whether it's two years from now, three years from now, we can say that, you know, in 2022, we had that money and we actually did something with it. So that's what I'm excited about. And so with that, Madam Chair, I'm prepared for any questions that you may
have. Do we have any questions for our CEO? Yes. Mr. Parker.
I know that was a couple years ago when I met with legislators from Wayne County. A number of them that were new. We plan on doing a similar thing this time. I don't know how many legislators new position I think it was good. It was good meeting for legislators. What we have done I'm sure they're gonna be supportive.
It's in the works now. Mr. Parker, we've been working with a PA to put that together. So in the coming months here, that will be arranged and for all of our board members to take part of that, you know on the legislative front as a whole we have believed about what 52 Ms. Brown 52 New House members who are coming in, you know, and so that's just covering the whole house there and certainly you're going to have an on the Senate side have 14 new senators so certainly some folks to connect with Yes. And I keep asking Miss Brown because we were in a meeting this morning. So some of this that was provided, so I'm hoping that she remembered as I did as well.
I think it was 52 were for Senators moving over to the house because they were termed
out okay, do we have any additional questions or comments? Say one more time on the record
how much grant dollars we received the WAM will be receiving this year. I just like hearing you service I think
total is over 70 million if you were to count of I mean 60 Plus. Yeah, over 70
and the cost of dealing for a seven mile location we'll be
good to spend that money well
but we're not coming out with the class to our budget be
nothing not to our budget. Do we have any other questions or comments from anyone else?
Before we move on to our presentations, I would like to receive a bow. The Board Chair report the executive committee report finance issue d r EC as well as our CEO monthly report. Next, our item is item number 12 Our westcon media presentation
Before we get to West comm. We are going to do a brief presentation on our communications department and then we're going to move on to West comm. So I am Tiffany Devon, I'm the Director of Communications. And we are just going to go quickly through this what I wanted to bring to you be oh hi Janelle. This is Janelle her and she's our communications and community outreach liaison. So we're going to partner together on our presentation. So as most of you know, hopefully you know what the communications department does and that we are responsible for internal and external communications. We are a department of three, myself Janelle And I have a communications intern and she is mostly responsible for writing. So we are very powerful even though we are quite small. Some of the outdoor media that we work on on a daily basis we have as you've seen the billboards our mental health care putting children first billboards we have a lot of STD messaging throughout the community. We also have messaging on bus stations and bike racks. And we work with three different vendors in the outdoor media front. The vendor that we work with the most is outfront media. They are the ones that have the most inventory throughout Wayne County. We also work with international outdoor and Brooklyn outdoor and Brooklyn is responsible for the bus stations and the bike racks. In terms of media partners, we have almost 20 media partners based on the communications and the SU D side. I'm not going to read all of them, but you know most of them a couple of new partnerships that we have going on for 2023 which we're very excited about actually. We are now working with today magazine which is magazine located specifically in the downriver area, because we understand that we need to get more messaging in the downriver area. So we actually have an article in the you can thank you. We have an article in the Today magazine and we focused on the south gate area this past month and then in December, we're gonna focus on Browns town in Woodhaven, and those stories are basically about DNS services. They're focusing on people that we serve, how they've been helped, what services what providers they've used. We're also going to be partnering with CNG newspaper which is also located down river the Yemeni American radio and magazine will have messaging on it about D when we're very excited that we get to partner with channel 19, which is community access in Hamtramck and surrounding communities completely free. So they are willing to put any kind of messaging on their channel about D when for no cost at all. And if any of you have been in the theaters, hopefully you've gotten a chance to see that fabulous blockbuster Wakanda. We are now in the movie theaters and we are in five different movie theaters in Wayne County on 89 screens. One little caveat which is very interesting is the Fairlane 21 IMAX theater just abruptly closed down on Sunday, just shut down. And so what they did the cinema company what they did was allowed us to have messaging one extra week on the Westlands side and also on the South Gate theater. So we are definitely covered and they are honoring their contract with us. Hopefully yesterday you got a chance to hear part two D when part two on the anti Adams radio show. He actually came to our new center one temporary offices and did a two hour live broadcast. He interviewed several of our providers Mr. Thomas Adams on the Sud side. Crystal Coleman with our children's center talked about children's services. Melissa moody talked about our clinical services. And Mr. Doe brought it up the rear to save the day and talk to Mr. Adams about you know, some of the topics that are burning with his with his listeners. So we got a chance to listen to some of the comments that people were concerned about, wanted to know more about D when and he actually would like us to do more with him. So our next radio interview with him will probably be in January, where we're going to talk about our mobile units and then just this past Sunday, we were on the Mildred Gattis show Mr. Dua was interviewed by Mildred Gaddis and she talked to him about services how people access services we're we're the providers are, how many are in Detroit, how many are in Wayne County. It was a great interview, and I believe it's posted up on her website under podcasts. You already heard about our dealing mobile apps but the communications department has been intimately involved in the development of the community app, we will be launching two apps, one for the community and one just for our members. So the member app is focused on medical information and that is specifically for members the community app you will be able to log in and you will be able to download the app and learn about where the food banks are how you can get help. If you have someone that you know that may be searching for housing, you'll be able to access our provider directory. So we're very excited about that. It will probably be launched in a few weeks and then I'm going to turn the mic over to Janelle.
Afternoon. Okay, so
I'm going to speak on our community outreach efforts. In the fiscal year 2122 D one staff attended 101 125 events 25% More than last year could go to the next slide. We also hosted 45 events in fiscal year 2021 events like reaching for the stars. We did numerous community engagement events where people were able to ask questions about the partnerships that we have as well as the upcoming the new crisis center and things of that nature in the community as well as
oh okay, let's get to the next one.
Okay, I'm sorry, I'm gonna move on to website updates. I got a little jumbled up here. Okay. And as far as our website updates, the communications department, we spent a lot of time with other departments, making sure that the content that they were sharing on each part of the website was user friendly. And concise. We also created a community outreach calendar that we share monthly this year is outreach opportunities in Wayne County. We highlight our we highlight our monthly awareness events so that people can know what's going on. Events like Veterans Day, family, caregiver, family caregiver month, and things of that nature. We can move to the next slide, which is our video content creation this year and last year as well. We started working really hard on updating our YouTube channel and making sure our content was interesting to young people and targeting all of our audience. We've done content this year that focused on back to school information, weight and tips, techniques and things that students can do to stay focused and tips for parents as well. We started doing ask the doc digital so we changed our newsletter from just being a newsletter to a video that we share on our social and on our website. We also have started what was previously it was called what's coming up we have started doing a show called Dewayne now where CV members speak to upcoming events and things that are going on in their communities. And those that are a lot of this different content is now being shared on channel 19. So that's really cool. We also have a youth United podcast that we're working on and planning to launch in the spring. So we're working on getting guest and preparing topics because we've been very, very aware of the need to focus on young people. So that's what our goal has been and that's what we've been working on. Here is one of our videos that we recently produced. This one is called let's talk about it and the focus has been stigma so could you play that for strength? Okay, hopefully you guys can visit our YouTube channel when you get when you get some free time. It's linked to our website, and it has all of that on there. We can move to the next slide which is video advocacy. So we did two video advocacy projects this year. One was one focused on the workforce shortage and the other was a CMH a video that kind of was speaking to the Starkey bill and us trying to get the word out to the community on that and you can go to the next slide, which is our event sponsorship. We have sponsored 50% more events this year. Events like the above and beyond Detroit police Safety Foundation, that ASC Executive of the Year event African American civil rights League, celebrate recovery walk and more. And that concludes our portion of the presentation
just one thing I wanted to mention that the video content is all original, all original video So Janelle And I put together those videos from scratch. And that's, you know, takes a lot of time. And, but we are very committed to that. So I'm now going to call up Gary spawned iKey is our social media liaison and he works with westcon
Tiffany actually saw the stigma video, it was nice.
Thank you for responding. Vice President at West Ham. We are your social media partner. Thanks very much for the opportunity to present today. We've queued up a couple slides just to give you a state of our engagement we originally started supporting and de when back in February of this past year and have been ramping up and are now moving into 2020 freight. You know westcombe The team is very much engaged in supporting D win across all channels. We're focused on the concerns of the community community members and making sure that we're dropping the right information into the right channels for those people to resonate with. You're in good hands with our current client base. We also support the autism alliance of Michigan so we look for cross promotional opportunities. Hope starts here in Detroit. And then again, a little bit more on the fun side, the Michigan Science Center. So you can see our goals right here are pretty straightforward. Of course gaining younger audience has been key. This is one of the items. When we look at the D one audience, it's very diverse. Anyone from LinkedIn who might be a professional 50 Plus to somebody that might be on Tik Tok, that might be 14. Understanding the nuances of these channels I think is key for us, making sure that we can also grow monthly engagement and then drive in engage these resources. It doesn't hurt to push information out but we need individuals to engage with us to understand the information that's being provided. And then to be able to continue that conversion over to the website to the resources be at the crisis line or resources that a parent might need to help a young youth. And then of course, d c d stigmatizing mental health is across all boards. Many people say hey, I think I've heard of the win, but I don't understand all of the opportunities and resources that they provide to us. And we're here to help channel that through the many channels that we're managing behind me that supports the team. Madeline Lopez is our designer and micro content creator, Sydney camp content and client management Maddie Roberts is our community manager managing the social channels and working directly with Janelle And Tiffany as post comes through. And then Rachel Nelson, working a month out to make sure that we're aligned with your content goals and challenges as they're coming up on a regular basis. We do have a couple of things just a little base here. Some people are very familiar with impressions, engagements and that engagement. Overall rates. We're here just to say that it's fantastic if we can go out on Facebook or some of the other channels and have, you know, 50,000 plus impressions great. It's sort of like a billboard. But what we want is really that audience to engage that information, share it with their peers and make sure that they're also then following back to the website. So some of the things that have happened through the communications team this last year is really focusing on realigning the STD landing page, making sure the content is direct smart and easily accessible to those audiences. The next slide, we have a couple little things here we just wanted to show while increasing engagement is great. We did increase followers are Facebook, Instagram, and specifically linked in we've seen a huge 30% increase LinkedIn, you might think, well youth isn't on LinkedIn, however possible opportunities for employment. That's where we're looking for. How do we fill that pipeline of the next qualified individuals to work for the de wind audience? This past fall we just launched tic tac and of course, I'm sure everyone in here is on tick tock, if not somebody in their communities on tick tock, and well, you can spend hours scrolling through tick tock tick tock is actually a very viable channel for our audience. You know, it's hard to get in front of a 14 year old or a 16 year old they're not on Facebook. They're not on Instagram, but Janelle will point out. Her nephews who are 14 are like while you're old, because you're on Instagram and we don't do Instagram. So making sure not to call you out on that. Making sure we're delivering the right content in the right channels at the right time. Next slide please. So with this, this is a piece that Janelle created from the team, really just aligning all the different channels through D wind that we're monitoring right now. And I think it's important for us all to acknowledge there's all these great channels, but not everyone's all involved. So you know many of you have an opportunity to get on social share those things and what that sharing does, it helps the algorithm so if we put a post out 10 people on the team here, share that information. That information then tells the channel we're on this information is important. So a good piece of this we do right now. Just started several weeks ago, calling the most trending posts and then we serve those up to Tiffany and her team. She pushes those out to the D wind family of over 400 plus individuals to help us share that information. Part of our focus for 23 Two is really work with the D wind family and help them understand the importance and the value of social. So we do have a social 101 coming up so that we can start somebody that very familiar with social, how do we help them move forward? How do we get somebody who's maybe kind of just playing on tic tac or Instagram or a channel because of their families on it to really engage and help really share D wins mission. Next slide. A couple of the objectives and strategies really, of course focusing on educating the team here at GE when you know we have this family that can be sharing content on a regular basis. I know verbally everyone is doing that. Let's do that socially and change the algorithms depend our increased visibility. Also just making sure we're increasing the availability, social media content to your partners. You have a variety of community partners, you have partners that support you on many different levels. Nabil walked the other day they're very heavy and focused on the social channels. We just want to make sure that we are supplying relatable content that they can pick up and also share on their channels. And then just of course increasing community awareness. You know, we talked about D win and you know who is the win? What is the win offer one of our ideas for 23 is the who is D win campaign, along with also our frequently asked questions again. Thankful is another campaign that we're launching right now. So you'll see some of those thankful videos showing up on Tik Tok. We'll repurpose that and then share it on Instagram. Repurpose that and share it on Facebook, recording it for each of those channels because those channels are all different. And next slide. A couple of things and I'm sure you're all knowing that trending is the micro content. micro content is huge. This isn't like 15 seconds. This is like 678 seconds and we're really focused on rising and putting more efforts in tick tock and making sure that we're telling the right story again to the right audience. And also we talked a little bit about Snapchat. We have been using Snapchat and if you want to go to the next slide over on the SU D campaign this is a full campaign that's running to support the substance use disorder that is happening in our community. We're making sure that we're aligning with these different channels. So we're testing on a couple of different things. So anything from streaming audio things Spotify, Apple Music, display ads, these are those little ads that once you hit Amazon, you're retargeted 20 million times. Tick tock in feed video and of course Instagram and Snapchat, making sure that the audience is seeing what we have to offer and this is all based around here to talk here to help campaign that's running right now. Next slide a little bit of social channel integration, making sure that we're integrating across all channels. Well, we said Snapchat is working and performing very well. From a paid standpoint, is Snapchat a channel that we need to activate from a social standpoint? That's what we're working right now with the communications team to identify what channels need the most effort put forth as we move forward. And then also making sure that we have the right mix. Next slide, please. Youth campaign outreach, this is a big moment. And I know we've been talking a little bit about this at the top of the call with a lot of the activity that's happening in high schools and community schools around town and throughout the country. How do we get in front of this youth audience and make sure they understand these resources are available to them? You know, it's very hard sometimes to serve up a suicide hotline ad and hope that everybody puts a heart on it. So making sure the content is right content. The individuals like somebody who's 14 1516 might have a friend or colleague that they can refer over to D when and they can tap into the resources that are available I think is key. Our integrated approach includes everything from developing relatable content for these individuals. And then also making sure that we're using micro influencers. So a micro influencer could be anyone with maybe 20,000 followers. We have a couple of individuals we have identified so far to somebody as big as like Big Sean, you know who has a foundation so understanding who we're looking at and who we're communicating to these micro influencers, I think can be an easy way for us to elevate the information that needs to be served out there, but then also supporting that looking for ambassadors within d winds organization that can also be micro influencers. You know, a micro influencer could have 10,000 followers, which would be a fantastic fit for us as we move forward. Great.
So a couple of those things, just letting you all know, monthly. We do supply this report to the communications team. We work very closely with the team to make sure that we're analyzing the data. We are responding to the data and making sure that data is taking us forward. We are happy to report from October this past October that our Facebook engagement has continued to increase, almost doubling this last month, September had 175 or it had 715 Total engagements in October had 1300. So who's engaging what's happening? A lot of the social posts that are about D when being out in the community receiving that award that was presented today are things that resonate with people throughout the community. They want to share that they want to feel part of the love, so that's great. We've also seen surprisingly a spike in Facebook reach. This is 18 to 24 which isn't typically on Facebook, but we have noticed an increase there. Instagram of course 340 More profile visits, Twitter kind of remaining stayed steady. Across the board. And of course, our big winner really is LinkedIn. And it's really just the community engaging and sharing the information that's being promoted through there. We're tracking all this data, making sure that it's aligned with your website and then tracking goals. One of our items that we're working on in 23 is making sure that we are setting some goals up inside Google Analytics so that you can track that data and serve that back to you. Great, thank you very much for your time today. Totally open for questions to
Mr. McNamara. So you mentioned you were chatting baselines
you are sending to the witness or people in the evening.
We have a baseline
Excellent question. One of the goals for 23 is to actually create an internal survey where we can actually serve a and d when employees on a quarterly basis to gauge how involved they are on social and how they are articulating sort of the brand messaging
that 12,000 Facebook fans, correct that 60,000
So wait, there are no metrics, baseball, talking about the fact that you're trying to engage with
what you say what you're doing in
this community once you were to keep going and you're moving awareness of that baseline. I said to anybody, they would have a clue what I was talking about what's the remembrance? Right. So do you have a number there? People in Detroit know what D one is?
This is just an initial campaign that we started brainstorming in this fourth quarter. So I think established we don't have a baseline. No, no, not at this point in time. But I think that is an important call. Because understanding who understands who D went is then tells us what the community looks like. Hope starts here has a similar problem. Everyone's like I've heard of Hope starts here. I don't understand what hope starts here does and they're funded from Kresge and Kellogg, the major funders behind trying to tell their message, but Metro Detroit, Detroit ers are not hearing that message. So we're working hard to get the right messaging to that audience. So
they do are we going to establish a baseline? Is there a plan to do a survey? Something to figure out what is the baseline of demons moving on to the population where the people actually know who we are?
This is great. We actually just finished up an action plan the action plan walks us all the way through 23. In that action plan, we do have these items listed there, and we can share that deck back out so everyone take a look at that too. Thank you. Very great question. Thank you.
Anyone else? Mr. Parker,
I'm sure had mentioned before about trying to come up with some come up with some login or something that people become aware of the ones that you hear right away, can you hear me now? Or something else of that nature? Are you trying to do something that makes it particularly as opposed to trying to get them to readily see some information?
We are familiar that there are two left tag lines right now being currently have floated that Tiffany's Kim has shared. And we are working through those to understand exactly how those would play out to a youth audience. Again, part of the action plan is really to dig down and understand how do we talk to a 14 year old, you know, how do we get that 14 year old to resonate and share that information with their peers,
your focus groups and young people to sit around some of their thoughts and
our collective team works directly with communications team but we haven't actually done any if I
if I can add manager replacable so we have between Tiffany and myself. We have been tossing around a few different taglines. I know we currently have the here to talk here to help. I know let's
say the tagline again. I'm sorry. With the T said the tagline was we currently
have the here to talk here to help and beginning of Tiffany's presentation we do had an we did have another one that we have been entertaining the we listen to We care. We do have different messages for different audiences because different art different messages resonate with different audiences whether you're talking to a younger a younger audience and older audience, we do recognize that we we service individuals from from birth, your birth all the way till death. So And in speaking to focus groups, we do have focus groups from people that we serve from our youth for from adults. So we do have focus groups that look at everything from our billboard campaigns to our radio ad campaigns or PSAs. So they do look at everything from our social to every medium that we put out there
I mean, Madam Chair,
thank you, you know, when you mention D when that acronym is something that I mean, what was it 2017 The week that that change came about? So part of what we're what we're doing here, when we say you know, D when we listen we care can connecting you to behavioral and physical health care. We have to have something that lends itself to knowing what D win is, I mean, because just the acronym alone isn't going to do it. I mean, like Blue Cross, you know, BCBS, whatever it is it's, you know, it's a staple. It's been here for years. So part of what it is that we have to do, besides the tagline you gotta connect the tagline to something so folks know what D when is that because you can mention D when and yeah, those of us in this room know it but D when connecting you to physical and behavioral health care or D when you know we listen we care connecting you to physical and behavioral
health or D when health
there has to be a link in terms of the services that we have. So folks know what we're talking about. If I may, Madam Chair, just one more. I'm not sure if there were any conversations around reach us Detroit. Is there any conversations around that because this was something that was developed during the early stages of COVID. Just in terms of reaching our young people, and the success of that was just extraordinary in terms of young folks being able to access about 12 or more assessment services through their cell phones being able to use that reach us, Detroit there. So I'm not sure if you have any information on that or Tiffany does.
You know that I think a great point that you're bringing there. The new app that's launching is going to be exactly what you need to drop into a young person stance. They're not on a desktop, they're on their phone. So making sure that we use that information from reach out to Detroit and harness that and leverage that into the campaigns for the app.
I think it's fantastic.
We just Detroit is all throughout our entire social media calendar every month. We're always promoting reach us detroit.org.
We have any other questions
Madam Chair, I was Parker said one of the reasons that we decided to have you guys come in was because of the fact that we were trying to figure out when and what does the word mean in the community when people hear the word what does that mean? And whether or not we're doing what we need to do as an organization to, to put ourselves out there so that when people hear certain things like Mr. Parker's that that when you hear me now, the first thing you think is right. So And what started the initial conversation and I won't go into any detail about the situation was the incident when the young man was fatally killed. That happened to have a mental situation so we here and the parents called the police department. So that kind of sparked the conversation what are we doing in the community to let people know that there are mental health services available in all of Wayne County, and it's supported by doing it. That's why you're here to let us know what it is that we need to do. So that if there is a situation whether you're a domestic at home, and one of your children, whether you're in school, whatever that situation, and somebody has a mental health issue, whether it's stuff that you some disorder, we want you to know or hear or or think the first thing when you're in that situation. Hold a call, you know, like, just like I just did that. Who do we call the first thing I thought it was both of us. You understand what I'm saying? That's pretty much that's where that was my initial thought as to why we need to figure out what are we doing, or who's doing this for us. And, and I and typically can can correct me if I'm wrong. was the reason that we decided to kind of bring in the whole team to kind of figure out, you know, what does that look like?
And so Okay,
I just come in. So basically, yes, Gary and his team and our team, we have been working on messaging in the communities for example, direct mail, especially in those zip codes where we've had a lot of the violence, as well as we're looking at gas station TV messaging, messaging in liquor. Stores, and that kind of thing. So he's just social media. So the whole broad communications plan is much bigger, obviously. But we are working with his team on all those kinds of
And I think you'll see in our action plan that we just completed and had just met with Brooke, Tiffany and Janelle on, these are items that we can take forward. So we'll be able to report out on what we are doing to make sure that the general awareness in the community about who dealin is, is understood and people know when to go and where to go. And who to call when they have at different points in their life challenges in the mental space that they're working
Mr. McNamara UX, do we have a benchmark What was your question?
So we don't have you already answered. They're gonna they're gonna develop some some next year. So.
So I'm the mom of the teenagers. So your social media channels channels are very important to me. That is my children's life. That's how they, you know, interact, communicate. So I'm looking for benchmarks. I'm looking for what did we like? What are we going to have a target we're trying to increase the chance to engage the voice of have given mental health swag. I've been saying that for over a year. Now. That's my thing. We have to give it a swag to engage our young people. I feel like the target market Mark margin should start as early as 11 because that's Middle School, that said kooky area where the hormones all over the place that trying to find themselves is a huge increase of suicide against our children who are struggling with identifying what their sexuality and they need a place to talk. So I'm big on preventative measures, and I do like the conversation of video of the stigma. I thought that was great. And I want to see more with social media. I've challenged our CEO of doing a tick tock video I told him that I want I felt like he should have launched it. He has a young a young person, Grace's eight, right, right. So she's a so I'm like, let's do it. My kids make me do things like that all the time. So and then I'm interested as to a tick tock videos as being more present. And Snapchat, I know they all kind of combined. I know the kids do their tick tock videos and actually show them on Instagram. I know that I know how all that works. Facebook, like my son's think Facebook is for old people. They don't even know what Facebook is. I mean, they don't. They said that's from my mother, their grandmother's age. But I just I mean I'm just relaying our kids so tags match. So I am looking for. I am looking for benchmark numbers I am looking for the increase of awareness. I'm big on us doing things with our schools
and our STD programs.
So we have a lot of kids now that are in school that are vaping they don't understand the the detriment of vaping that is going on. That's a big thing. And our micro influencers list like when you said though you're engaging. Are you thinking we have I mean, who were your thoughts?
Are we looking at being mindful of the resources available? We are looking at individuals that reside in the city of Detroit that we would currently vet and make sure that they're aligned with the winds messaging and goals. And then from that present those back so we have shared a few of these micro influencers. One person off the top of my head is Colin Detroit. He's a young individual who basically gets on his bike and rides the city and goes around and explores the city, but just recently posted about mental health around the holidays. So looking at individuals like that the investment is much lower than if we look at some of the larger influencers here in town, knowing that we need to grow slowly, because this is a very curated content space. You know, I just want to make sure we're not bringing in an influencer who's not saying exactly what we need them to say and communicating properly. So
well, we know that I'm very impatient with the process. This is urgent. Right? So it should it needs to happen today. No, maybe we'll say a year ago so I'm very is is urgent for me and I'm very impatient with the process. So take that into consideration.
Oh, and so and then I'm big on student athletes. So you look at all the major athletes, they're all talking about protecting their mental health. We've had some of the greatest athletes in this world that are taking mental breaks from their sport. We're talking Naomi Osaka. Okay, okay. Okay. So we're talking our student athletes. We have a lot of student athletes who have coaches like they're talking to their students about being proactive, the mental awareness. So this is something that is urgent, and just a thought, so I'll even share some different micro influencers that I've saw on social media I shared with her and so maybe the conversation can start.
Now this is very helpful dialogue today.
I appreciate you coming in.
No, thank you for the opportunity. I have kept for quite a few notes from this discussion, because because I could hear and trust that we're here to support you 100% 110% And I similar, like things to move quickly. So knowing that we're working with the team that's right here. They're very good. We have a weekly status to keep everything moving. So every Thursday we check in with each other to make sure that we're adjusting and identifying these opportunities as they come. So these will be captured and brought into our weekly status call.
Don't forget about my benchmarks. Yes. Okay. All right. All right. Thank you. I appreciate your time. Thank you for being here. Thanks, everyone.
Like magic. Oh, here it is.
All right, excellent. Next item number 15. I provide a presentation group works
well. Good afternoon. Thank you for being here.
Very brief message about our agency today and we appreciate the opportunity to
do you could I don't know who's flipping slides but thank you if you wouldn't mind Thank you. Growth works
mission is to you know, help individuals restore hope embrace change and improve their lives. Pretty small sentence for a pretty large task. No doubt we do. That through four core values. They're listed here. A passionate dedication, a service to others, a commitment to our community, which is more than just geographic communities. It's all sorts of different communities that we're all involved in, and humility, which is my favorite. I don't know how you could do this work without being teachable and always trying to improve. The work is changing so much. We all know that. And so being being prepared to take that task is really important. If you had flipped two more slides, thank you. So I just want to talk to you about growth works today. So 2022 is our 51st year serving kids and families in Wayne County, and, and grow. There has been many, many things over many, many years. And so I kind of wanted to give you a snapshot of where we exist today and that's on the next slide. So we have the Western Wayne care management organization. So we provide provision for adjudicated youth in western weighing the Conference of Western Wayne County kind of catchment area. We offer diversion services through partnership with a third circuit court. We do supervised visitation, which is which is a really neat program really challenging program, where custodial and non custodial parents are able to bring their child to a safe environment to have time with a noncustodial parent with a parenting monitor in place and those are for cases where we're maybe one or both the parents has protective orders against each other domestic violence issues, those sorts of things, but still trying to nurture that that family bond. The services and Jessica will talk more about them with services that are supported by D when our adult and adolescent sed outpatient treatment, adult and adolescent relapse prevention programming, and then the Western Wayne rescue recovery, which is our 24/7 365 Peer Coaching hotline, where we'll dispatch a coach out to someone who's in crisis, like I said, anytime of the day. And then one program I did not mention on here. That's something that's a little bit new to us is we're coordinating the efforts of the Western Wayne Suicide Prevention Coalition. It's seven school districts in the western Wayne region. It represents 65,000 students, and their goal is zero suicide and we our goal is to train them. QPR which is a question Persuade, Refer it's for non practitioners a model to make that very difficult. Question. Are you okay? Do you need support right now? Are you thinking of harming yourself to create a little normalcy around having that conversation for adults? Our goal is by the end of June to train 6500 adults in public schools in those seven communities. We're just over 3500 As we sit here today, so well on our way and looking forward to achieving that goal. And Jessica is going to talk a little bit about the programs that de wind supports for
us. Okay, hello, everybody.
Oh, I think I have to speak a little bit closer. So I'm looking at you as you can see, we have our adult and adolescent STD treatment services. You know, a lot of our individuals that are referred to us come through a legal means so we work pretty closely with area court. So whether that's for our adults, our drug treatment courts, district courts, things like that, and self referrals to and then for adolescents that Third Circuit Court, as well as local police departments. While we do have our formal diversion services through the prosecutor's office, we also do informal diversion with local police departments. And a lot of those youth end up in our treatment services as well. So the services that are covered involve outpatient early intervention and peer coaching. And then the types of modalities that we use in doing individual and group services that are trauma informed. You CBT motivational enhancement therapy, dialectical behavior therapy. These are things that we really try to provide many different tools that we're using, not just one. And then as far as you'll see the Western Wayne rescue recovery. That's our peer coaching a big part of our peer coaching. So while we do work with course we also work very closely with local police departments and with St. Mary mercy in Livonia and as you can see here, we had nearly 1100 referrals to that program in fiscal
year 22. And then I think going back to what
I just wanted to mention for a minute, so I'm a I'm formerly from the education community. I was an assistant superintendent in South Redford schools for a number of years before I came to growth works and of course in schools we talk all about data and and that's something that that I've been proud to bring to growth works it's really hard to do, you know, we're not making bumpers, there's not a lot of technical specification but but there is a lot of data that we can glean if we ask the right questions, and we do it over time and with fidelity. And so we've really moved into this idea of sort of progress monitoring or growth using a measurement where our clients when they come to us and where are they when they leave us for whatever reason, they may leave us and and how can we use that to improve our care in the agency. And so we use assessment data analytics, like it says up here, we use the aggregated and disaggregated data internally. And it's really modeled after Malcolm Baldrige continuous improvement. Those are in the healthcare field. You're probably familiar with that. And Ford Motor Company. There's a great book American icon that came out in the mid 2000s. And it was about Malayalees time as CEO and Ford, and how they use data in the executive office to and create a normalcy around sharing data, even the bad data. And so that's what we've tried to do. And so what we brought you today is and it may be tough to read. So hopefully you have this either in front of you or we can share the slides with the group later. But we brought some of the data about some of
our treatment all comes
back to me. So you'll see here these are this first page here is treatment outcomes regarding our adults. So this is discharged adults in fiscal year 22. So about 121. So some of the things just briefly I won't go through them all but when we're talking about working with legal corpse 97% No new legal charges, and looking at asanas upon discharge. 88% and I think it's worth noting that 71% of those have at least 90 days abstinence upon discharge. From our programming. Going to the next slide
okay here for
our rescue, recovery or peer coaching. We're looking at substances when they're referred to us. And while this program was started, and still is very much focused on looking at opioid use and reducing opioid deaths and all the ideas, as you can see coming in, we still have alcohol as a very large factor in that but that does not mean someone can't be in the program. We take everybody and we're working regardless of the substance that may lead to that referral.
And then going to the next slide. Here are some
stats for discharging from the rescue recovery. As you can see, we have 66% making progress towards their plans that they create with our coaches 60% that are absent upon discharge. And you can see that's an average of 70 days afternoons upon discharge from the program, and 65% active in support activities. And I imagine actually, the app that's being developed would be really helpful to and helping to connect these individuals to their activities.
Yep. And yeah, just to just to mention, so So the slides that we shared about data, it's great to be able to share that with you today. This is data that comes right from dashboards that our program leadership review every month and they use that Plan, Do Study Act PDSA protocol for that continuous improvement piece. That's that's where this data is is most impactful to our organization, but I thought you'd like to see some of it today. For the record, Tiffany that is eight minutes and 40 seconds. So I'm well under my allotted time, 10 minutes,
but there is an opportunity if we if there's
any questions I'll make a comment I'm going to tell a story.
One moment please. Could you tell me what was your slogan again? It says zero it was something about no suicide It was simple suicide prevent. Yeah,
well, that's it that's a
00 You've no seven
we're next we have your normal high school which by the way is taking on Cass tech and state data this weekend's sex going down
there seriously, I say you. There's a lot of dreaming going on around here. It's a whole lot of dreaming going on. Okay, yes mister make me look I'm going to remind you of the time restraint that what you put forth we
have three minutes till three o'clock
okay, so in western wing, when I try to explain what G one is, I tell them we're kind of like roadworks only we do a lot more and we do huge amount of work across who works with us. And they know gross works and Westerling there's a reason because we have a different system in Western way than you have in most of the county. We fought hard to change the system and you guys could all have the system we have if you could get your police forces and your judges on board. Here's what happens in West. Here's what happens in Detroit in Detroit, or most of the community, the county. If you get if you had truancy you're basically probably have a drug or alcohol problem. Usually. They give you a truancy ticket. You go to the you have six months to go to circuit court and you go to circuit court, you wander around the house till the judge is gonna see you the judge doesn't see you. They give you a piece of paper they say don't do it again. You pay a fine and mom and dad, single mother, whatever takes the day off to do with all this. You go back to Detroit and see you go back to school now you probably have drug or alcohol problem started the whole day. And you may take another year and you get another truancy ticket and then you six months later you end up back in front of that judge and this time they actually do get you in there they do all the tests on you that correct? Pretty much okay, so yeah, so anyway, we in western wing changed the rules, and it was very hard to do it and we tried to bring the whole county with it, but they didn't. But in Western way, the judges and the police and growth works all work together. So if you get a truancy ticket now, you don't wait six months to go to court. You now because y'all had to go to the circuit court. You now go to a local court in your hometown, where our judges can basically hook you up with growth works. hook you up with the cops if they have to. And and tag team these kids to get them up after problems. Did I see that number right 97% Or was it 82% Who used to be 80% then 80% success rate to keeping kids off of drugs and out of jail, which is amazing. You know what that success rate is? I was in Detroit a few years ago, wanting this is 20% rent per two. So I don't know. This is the difference between getting getting your judges to do what they should be doing, which is allowing these kids which is getting these kids as soon as they get them. Don't make them wait, get them and get them hooked up with a peer group to fix the problems. And it was a long hard fought and we fought for three or four years. And that effect jewel where was the one that finally helped me helped us get get it across to YouTube. And it was a heck of a war but it worked out we're really proud of one source.
So judges that are stopping you getting that system because they have their system and they liked their system.
Just typing. Thank
