Thursday’s counseling staff meeting at Northwestern Mental Health Center in Crookston doubled as a mini-celebration to mark Don Christie’s 20 years at NWMHC.

Christie, MSW, LICSW, has been director of Outpatient Services, a position Janet Denison will now hold, so Christie can focus solely on patient therapy. He will still be working full-time, but will be taking more time to visit his two daughters and their families in Nevada and Pennsylvania, and fishing in Canada.

There will be a larger party for him including more staff down the road.
