CHEBOYGAN — Cheboygan City councilwoman and immediate past president of the Cheboygan Rotary Club Diane Raab described herself as “Cheboygan’s biggest fan.”

Raab, who is also a social worker, said she was simply ecstatic upon hearing the news that McLaren Northern Michigan is addressing the need for behavioral health services in the region.

“I was just ecstatic when I heard this because it’s such a desperate need,” Raab said Monday as McLaren Northern Michigan officials announced plans of developing the Justin A. Borra Behavioral Health Center at the McLaren Northern Michigan Cheboygan Campus. “It will bring not only jobs, but support and treatment for people in our community. They won’t have to go hundreds of miles away anymore, and it will probably bring people from other communities that need the expertise of mental health practitioners and providers that will be working here.
