Julia Thompson is a counselor in the Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP) at Kaiser in Lathrop, CA
What inspired you to pursue a career in behavioral health?
What inspired me to be in behavioral health, specifically addiction, is that I saw so many families suffering because of addiction and not knowing how to help or support their loved one.
How has being in NUHW helped you in your profession?
NUHW has helped me join with others to improve working conditions and gives me a voice to speak up when I see things that are wrong in the department and to support my colleagues in this work that we all are so passionate about.
