“Any way that you can create that communication to be a safe place for them to land is the best thing you can do as a caregiver,” said Caitlyn Ogilvie, LCSW, CHR’s Child and Family Service Director, in sharing what parents should know about managing their child or teen’s mental health. She elaborated on the importance of keeping open lines of communication with children and teens, as well as in paying attention to changes in behavior. She noted that talking to your children on a regular basis about how they are doing is critical in making them comfortable enough to turn to their parents when they are in need.

Ogilvie and Grzywinski shared what families should expect when they come to CHR for outpatient care, emphasizing the tools that CHR provides to help families support their children. “Therapy really is a safe and non-judgmental place. We use therapy to support exploring concerns that the family and child might have at that time. As well, building individualized tools that they are needing to be successful,” said Jessica Grzywinski, LMFT, Clinical Program Director for CHR’s COP Manchester.

Ogilvie and Grzywinski also discussed openings in CHR’s Child and Family Division and why they encourage others to apply for positions at CHR. “If you’re looking for rich, meaningful work that embeds you in the community, this is a great option for you,” Ogilvie shared. She also highlighted CHR’s commitment to providing employee wellness, paid-time off, and work-life balance, and growth and training opportunities.
