A few years back I was pleased to appoint Chapin resident, David Jameson, to the Richland County Board of Mental Health. Not only was he willing to serve, he was willing to make a difference!

I’m pleased to share that recently David was appointed as Chairman of the Board for the Columbia Area Mental Health Center which broke ground late last year .

David has a wealth of knowledge and a very generous heart. Two assets that have served our community and the mental health community well over the years.
