We strongly believe in teaming up with community resources and finding the best fit. In keeping with this believe, we recently hosted a meet and greet with North Spring Behavioral Healthcare. North Spring provides multi-faceted services for children and adolescents in Northern Virginia, right outside of DC. The treatment team includes psychiatrists, registered nurses, therapists, social workers, and mental health workers.
From acute or inpatient care to outpatient follow up, facilitated by community liaisons, North Spring works with families and young people to coordinate care in the mental health community in the DC area. They are endorsed by NAMI as providing a high level of psycho education and mental health care.
Like Embolden, they also utilize mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation strategies to work with young patients.
Thank you to everyone who attended and especially to North Spring’s Community Outreach Liaison and Admissions Director, Christy Evans,
