Hi, I am introducing myself as the new Mental Health Coordinator/Crisis Support person hired by Social Services. My name is Pam Cady and I have worked as a Mental Health Counselor for the past 25 years. I was born in Harney County and went to graduate school in Bozeman Montana. I have had different roles, starting at Kirkland residential treatment for boys, then working for the Preschool Healthy Start program, and five years as the Hines Middle School Counselor. Most recently, for the past 10 years I worked with children, teens, adults and families as a Mental Health Counselor. I love helping people dealing with the stress of transitions, depression, anxiety and trauma. I am looking forward to providing support, encouragement and skills building for the Burns Paiute Tribal members. I have experience as a crisis worker, helping people with suicidal ideation, developing safety plans and on-going support. I also do groups and my favorites have been pain management and activity therapy groups. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at 541-573-8015.
