CMH is a bunch of bs. there is too much of a high turnover rate and the way they do help is stupid. all they do is milk the system.

Please take a number to talk to the AG's Office. As I understand there are a lot of people now willing to come forward.

I worked there 20+ years ago, & it was well known that Carlsbad Mental Health were padding the bills & bilking thousands of dollars. Someone must have gotten STUPID greedy for someone to finally catch it! And nosurprise, you are definitly right- you didn't know WHO was nuttier, the clients or the staff.(!)

Heard Carlsbad Mental Health in Carlsbad, NM was closing on Monday October 22, 2012. To be run by a group out of Roswell. The investigation of fraud is continuing.

For right now mental health is still open. If the group from Roswell comes there are serious concerns because they do not perform background checks on their employees. Ready to send your kids to a pedophile? I hope that this issue can be resolved and whoever is responsible for the alleged fraud should face criminal charges. Our children and the people that work there that have not had a part in this should not have to pay for someone else's lack of judgement

The problem at Carlsbad Mental Health has been ongoing for many years. This did not just happen all of a sudden. The high turn over of the professional staff, doctors. So many people knew what was going on. People either turned a blind eye to the problem, or they themselves were benefiting. So the Cancer grew and grew and festered to what it is today. So like a cancer it is better to kill it, then to let it continue. Many people knew and did nothing, and now we reap the rewards. So goes the continuing story that is Carlsbad, NM.

Looking forward to the trial(s)

i myself was helpless after "doctor" after "doctor" saw my daughter, gained her trust, and then either left her by quitting with no notice, or changing hours (when i already had appointments scheduled) and telling us we either had to go durring the day when she had school and i had work, or not at all.
to a child with trust issues because her uncle mollested her being tossed around like that was terrible, and has deepened dramatically her issues with trust, not to mention has made her hate therapists because "they are supposed to care, but they dont!"- via my daughter. i will never go back even if they stay open.

Yes, I had the same problem with a therapist being new, then another new one, then another. The other problem was them not showing up, we were not told what was going on. My child took it hard to be changing constantly and they didnt know what they are doing. They dont get to the problem, it is as if they were lingering on and waiting for the next money to come in and same old crap. I will not take my child back there again. I already have someone else set up. I am sorry to read about your child being molested. I hope you find a therapist soon.

To 'helpless' and 'morethan1': as long as you keep perpetuating to the kid that they are a forever a vitim who's salvation is in the hands of others, you are cementing in the end result.

Make your child show themself and prove to themself that they are purer, stonger and better than others. True healing comes from within.

Why you'd pay somebody ELSE to do what YOU as a parent are uniquely able to do is beyond me anyway.

Wow, and you think you are so damn smart changing your name. I suggest you see someone because you sound like you have a multiple personality disorder. It is beyond me why you even would try to think you are smart enough to know what is going on in these people's lives. Your comment does not make any sense. You just made yourself look stupid.

i talk with my daughter about it as much as i can, as much as she will talk to me about it. Mr whipple you are an ill informed idiot, straight out. you are the kind of "dirty laundry" men who kept women from coming forward with this in the first place. she doesnt like to talk to me about it because i become visibly upset. i cry, and have to hold back to keep from sobbing.
she wakes up at night with night terrors, she goes to the office in the middle of the day and talks to the counselor, because sometimes she cant focus all she can think about is what happened. i know she needs to move on, thats what therape is for. there are a number of complications that arrise as a child becomes more grown up. emotions that regular kids have trouble with, and with her condition she doesnt know how to process any of this. to think that i can single handedly put my daughters mind and emotions back on track would be an idiotic belief and would put my daughters health at risk due to my own ego.... because believing you are EVERYTHING your child will ever need is ego. the help provided by a good counselor is absolutly invaluable. at the same time the damage done by someone who says they are there to help, that they care... proving they dont really care at all... and actions speak louder than words, especially to a child who was already shown that trust is something that can so easily be murdered.

You dont owe an explanation to anyone!! You as a parent have done a great job for getting your daughter help. Don't let anyone start their shit on you and cause you stress as you are already dealing with it enough alone. As for the name Mr. Whipple, well, I believe it is one person who is changing their name on here and who likes to start their BS. I hope your daughter gets better and finds outlets to get through this as well as others who age who can relate no matter how long it takes.
