New Hampshire Children's Behavioral Health Collaborative (CBHC) announces the appointment of its new Program Coordinator, Lynn Post. Lynn brings to CBHC decades of experience in marketing and communications for nonprofits, small businesses and technology companies and is a 2016 graduate of Leadership New Hampshire. Lynn will be responsible for programs related to communications and event management, as well as office administration.
Most recently, Lynn worked as principal of The Post Group, Inc., providing marketing and operational services for small to mid-size organizations. In addition, she served as a pro bono consultant for Executive Services Corp, providing strategic planning and communications strategies for non-profit organizations, including the Visiting Nurse and Hospice for Vermont and New Hampshire and the Monadnock Conservancy. Prior to 2009, Lynn held leadership product marketing positions in technology companies that include EMC and Hewlett-Packard Company.
As a New Futures board member since 2014, Lynn learned about the value of effective advocacy in increasing support for alcohol and drug problems in New Hampshire. “I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to advancing better systems integration for children’s behavioral health, including substance use disorder, in New Hampshire. I look forward to helping the CBHC accomplish the goals set forth in the CBHC strategic plan.”
“Lynn’s communications background will be extremely valuable as we turn our attention to updating our Collaborative partners and external audiences on the effective work CBHC has done to realize the implementation of a System of Care in New Hampshire,” said Chris Alibrandi, Director of CBHC. “Lynn’s experience will equally support our work in 2017 as we update CBHC’s strategic plan to reflect the progress and successes made by Collaborative members in removing barriers to a statewide System of Care.”
Located in Concord, NH, the New Hampshire Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, first convened in 2010 through a joint initiative of the NH Endowment for Health and the NH Charitable Foundation to study and respond to the strengths and challenges of meeting the behavioral health needs of New Hampshire’s children and youth. The Collaborative has expanded its membership and technical expertise to ensure a robust assessment of existing systems, best practice research, assets and limitations as well as the needs and hopes of those serviced by the existing systems of care. The vision of the membership, currently 60 organizations and hundreds of families, is to cultivate and sustain an integrated, comprehensive children’s behavioral health system for the Granite State.
