I often say, “All means all y’all,” and today’s episode reminds listeners that every Kentuckian deserves to be part of a caring community, despite our differences. My guest, Vestena S. Robbins, is a senior executive advisor in the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities. Raised in Bell County, her Berea College experience ignited a passion for research, innovation and evidence-based practices. Robbins went on to receive a doctorate in Child and Family Research and Policy from the University of South Florida and has worked in children’s mental health for over 30 years. We discuss her personal journey, professional vision and newfound perspective as a client of services provided through the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
