Region Ten Staff Profile: Megan Brown

Every month Region Ten provides a profile of our staff members during commemorative months so that the community has a sense of the unique backgrounds and stories our staff bring to the people we serve. 

Name and Position at Region Ten: Megan Brown, Adult Rehabilitative Services Office Manager.

Where are you from? Born and raised in Charlottesville, VA.

What drew you to the mental health field? My dad, Caruso Brown, worked at Region Ten for a number of years and also my sister is in the mental health field as well. Over the years I’ve heard a lot about their work and it’s a topic I have always been interested in because I am the kind of person that likes to help others and support people in any way possible. I also think mental health impacts everyone and it’s important to understand that people who are struggling with their mental health are just like the rest of us.

What are some of the highlights in your professional career? I really appreciate the staff that I work with every day, and the people we serve are also a big part of what I enjoy about my work as well.  Our consumers have good days and bad days, but I love being able to lift them up, congratulate them when they accomplish something, and bear witness to their recovery milestones. There are definitely some very sad stories, but there is also a lot of hope. It feels good to “do our part” to help the people in our community.

What do you enjoy about your work at Region Ten? I am a people person and I really enjoy working at the front desk and being the first point of contact for people who come to Region Ten seeking services. The people that Region Ten serves are all very unique, and it is rewarding to be able to help them in any way possible and get them what they need so that they are set up for success on their recovery journey.

What does Black History Month mean to you? It’s a time to reflect on the ways African-Americans have suffered and also overcome so much. Racism is still present today, and we’ve all had our struggles, but Black History Month is an opportunity to uplift one another and recognize how far we’ve come. There are good things that have been accomplished and there are opportunities to do more and create more access for people. It makes me proud that we are who we are today and how far we’ve come after all that we’ve been through, and it’s nice to have a time each year to recognize that.
