Hoyleton’s Woehlke Named Board President, Community Behavioral Health Care Association
Adam Woehlke, MA, LCPC, director of behavioral health services for Hoyleton Youth and Family Services in Fairview Heights, Ill., has been named board president of the Community Behavioral Healthcare Association (CBHA) of Illinois for 2024. Woehlke has been a director at Hoyleton since 2021 and has worked in the behavioral health field for the past 14 years.
CBHA is a statewide not-for-profit membership organization representing the interests of community behavioral healthcare agencies in the state of Illinois. CHBA members are mission-driven behavioral healthcare providers advocating within the industry for access and availability of a comprehensive system of accountable, quality behavioral healthcare services for the people of Illinois.
During the annual CBHA Conference recently held in Chicago, Woehlke, who currently is the board vice president of the organization, addressed the more than 300 attendees from across the state.
“My reflections about becoming the board president of CBHA next year reminded me of the importance of keeping an open heart, staying curious, to strive for personal growth, improve my self-awareness, show unconditional positive regard, try my best to always reserve judgement, and to be the person my 8-year-old self needed,” Woehlke said. These statements were met with applause of appreciation from the crowd in attendance.
Hoyleton is proud to have a key role with an organization that has been successful in getting significant legislative and regulatory changes in behavioral healthcare. CHBA has secured rate increases for the workforce and is now poised to take things to the next level with continued development of quality programs and services to respond to the community behavioral health needs in the communities they serve.
For more than 50 years CBHA has been representing the interests of agencies in the state in an effort to ensure access and availability of a comprehensive system of quality behavioral health services. With Woehlke’s leadership in 2024, CBHA and partner agency Hoyleton Youth and Family Services will continue to build on state initiatives, develop workforce strategies, and clinical practices to ensure better health outcomes for all people.
