Tri-County Mental Health Services Reels in Donation

The area's leading mental health agency reeled in a big catch recently by getting "hooked up" with the The Bass Federation (TBF). The group has donated $500 to support Tri-County Mental Health Services to support its work in the community. The two organizations are working together to create a family and youth angling tournament to benefit the agency and its work with young people. Pictured are Scott Barker, TCMHS Controller and TBF member, Tina Clark, Director of Development, and Ron Herbert, President of the Bass Federation.

TCMHS serves over 10,000 individuals each year with innovative programs and services addressing mental health, substance abuse, mental retardation/developmental disabilities, autism, and more. Its philosophy of building toward recovery and sensitivity to traumatic experiences of consumers gives hope to individuals, families, and communities in Androscoggin, Northern Cumberland, Franklin and Oxford counties.

The Bass Federation is the oldest broad-based, independent, grassroots organization in bass fishing. According to President Ron Herbert, the Maine Chapter is especially committed to youth development and conservation. For more information visit
