Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient
“My time at the Children’s Home reinforced my desire to enter the mental health field, and further sparked more specific interests in mental health education and insurance policies pertaining to mental health care.”
This summer I had the opportunity to work at a residential treatment program for children with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and psychological difficulties. I participated in individual counseling sessions, facilitated group and family therapy, and explored other, non-traditional modes of therapy. My role as a counselor enabled me to help these teens identify, accept, and build strategies for working through their immediate and future concerns.
