Program Leadership

Staff and Associates

Treatment integrates case management services with family, school and agency support systems. Your child will work with a large team of staff members, all of whom have different credentials and expertise in child and adolescent mental health care. This team includes a specific child psychiatrist and clinical social worker who will coordinate the care for you and your child, as well as a larger team of psychiatric nurses, mental health counselors and clinical educators. Each of these team members is an essential part of your child’s treatment. Together, they will provide a safe and nurturing environment, along with mental health consultation, diagnostic services, and treatment for your child. Additional professional consultations and referrals will also be provided for your child, as needed. You will have the opportunity to meet with staff throughout your child's stay. A clinical social worker assigned on the first weekday of admission will be your primary contact.
