A good word

It is my pleasure to have served in diverse capacities over the years. Most of all, I have enjoyed being part of programs and projects that have helped to make a positive impact in the lives of individuals, their families and the greater community.

Cardum is a collaborator and leader in the field

of health and wellness with a focus on mental health. 

Her experience and expertise is an asset to any project

or organization of which she is a part.


I have had the privilege to work with Cardum for over three years and have been impressed with her management of a countywide wellness program that increased information and access to whole health tools for culturally and ethnically diverse communities.


Cardum is highly knowledgable,  dependable, dedicated and a team player. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

I have worked closely with Cardum Harmon for approximately three years in her role as Alameda County's 10 x 10 Wellness Campaign Manager,and my 40 years working in the public mental health system has enabled me recognize a diamond when I see one. Cardum is a diamond of the highest quality. Her personal values, life experience, interpersonal skills, speaking, writing, organizing and research acumen, coupled with her perseverance and hard work, is what makes her a precious gem. When I had the opportunity to hire her to be a project consultant for a program of Mental Health Consumer Concerns, addressing the role of spirituality in the faith community and helping persons with mental health issues in recovery, I sought her out for the position. She did an excellent job. Cardum is 

indeed one-of-a-kind and in her work ethic, she leaves no stone unturned.




Working with Cardum, I can truly say that as a Program Manager, she is committed to excellence.  

She is also an impassioned mentor and a strong advocate for mental health consumers.  

I consider her to be an out-of-the box and independent thinker and someone who is methodical in her execution.
