Welcome to our webpage specifically for MNA Alum. Similar to the family resource library, here you will find a centralized list of the services we offer, including our regular virtual support groups – which are available to any alum ages 18 and older.
Meet the Outreach and Alumni Manager Team
We’d like to take a moment to introduce ourselves as your Outreach and Alumni Managers. We are your primary points of contact for any questions or needs related to Monte Nido & Affiliates’ alumni services. Supporting you working towards and maintaining full recovery is a top priority in this role, as is assuring our MNA alum have access and awareness to our offerings.
Liz Farnham, Senior Outreach and Alumni Manager
