Retired System of Care Family Coach and Trainer; Consultant

Madge “Pat” Mosby is a Retired System of Care Family Coach and Trainer for The Institute of Innovation and Implementation at the University of Maryland Division of Social Work, which provides statewide technical assistance and training. Pat is a single mother of three children and a grandmother of four beautiful grandchildren. Pat’s involvement in children’s mental health began at home: she has three children, two with mental health challenges; one was on the Emotionally Disturbed Unit (which the title has now been changed) and the other, who was in Gifted and Talented Program in the Montgomery County School System. Pat has worked in the children’s mental health field for over 15 years, beginning as a consumer of services in the Wraparound process for her children. After receiving the support, she needed for her children and gaining the ability to navigate the child serving agencies, she decided to help other families and became a Family Support Partner. She has assisted families in their effort to find the support they need and helped them to become empowered and knowledgeable about the system and the care for their children. When the opportunity presented itself, she became a Family Support Partner and then Care Coordinator, facilitating and coordinating the wraparound process while she is working in a SAMHSA “Wraparound Grant Initiative” in Montgomery County, Maryland called “Community Kids.” She once stated she really liked the name because it included the youth with mental health challenges as part of the community and not as a problem in the community. Pat is an expert in the wraparound field and the engagement and partnership of families and youth. She has testified on the state and local level on behalf of children’s mental health and wraparound. Pat has trained and presented at national and state conferences, she has helped initiate youth involvement in Montgomery County, Maryland and peer support in several States around the Country. She has several certifications: National Certified Peer Support Partner, Certified Life Coach, CCAR Peer Recovery Coach and Trainer, Family Wraparound Coach and Trainer, Wellness Recovery Action Plan Facilitator Mental Health Core and Youth First Aid, Motivational Interviewing Trainer and Active Parenting Coach and Trainer. Pat continues to advocate and empower youth and families around the country.
