It's with a combination of joy and sadness that I let you know John Nishinaga has left his position with my company to devote himself more fully to seeking stillness in a Buddhist Monastery.  John joined PDA over 5 years ago and evolved from being a part time contractor, to Chief Software Architect. John devoted himself to the development of CommonGround and understood that our mission was to amplify the voice of service users and to support their recovery. He met many of you at our CommonGround sites. He listened closely to what was helpful and what needed improvement. He had the technical genius to turn ideas into code, that manifested as tools to be used by ordinary people in mental health settings.  

More than anything, John was my friend. All of us at PDA will miss him and we wish him the best in his spiritual journey. We also know that John's spirit and love will live on in the CommonGround web application and in our new RecoveryLibrary. From us all - Thank you John.
