Firelands Employee Receives Ray of Hope Award

(November 1, 2017 - Sandusky, Ohio) – Tim Wise, site director for Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services of Sandusky County, received the Ray of Hope award during the National Alliance on Mental Illness Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties dinner at Anjulina’s Banquet Hall. The award is given to those who are valiant leaders and dedicated to serving people with mental illness.

Wise was also the featured speaker at the banquet, delivering a personal and inspirational message to attendees.

“You are not alone out there,” Wise said. “Struggling with mental illness is lonely and overwhelming. Simple acts like a smile and a kind word of reassurance can make all the difference in the world when someone is hurting.”

Wise has worked at Firelands for 18 years, starting as a therapist in 2000. He has assisted in Crisis Intervention Training for area law enforcement, EMS and fire personnel.
