In Memory

Two Remarkable Leaders

The Early Childhood Mental Health Program Board and staff commemorates two remarkable former Executive Directors: Arlette Merritt, Executive Director 1981- 2011 and Lynn Martin, Executive Director, 2011- 2015.

These extraordinary women provided an exceptional commitment to the community and to our ECMHP staff team. By creating and offering cutting edge mental health services, both women had vital roles in leading our organization to be recognized as the premier agency in West Contra Costa County serving young children and their families.

An Enduring legacy

Arlette Merritt and Lynn Martin’s passion for serving this population lives on in ECMHP’s work helping our community’s children and families in need.
