Dianne S. Skaggs, LCSW

Dianne has 27 years of experience as a Mental Health Professional; most of her career has been invested in community mental health centers and the clients that are served through those facilities. With that experiential knowledge, she has an excellent perspective on the operations and services offered by the centers and will be in a good position to share the message of community mental health.

In addition to her clinical knowledge base, Dianne has extensive managerial experience in personnel, compliance, accreditation, knowledge of the Medicaid regulations, electronic health records, and so many of the areas that are essential components of our behavioral health operations.
