A number of MV residents come to us directly from public and independent schools, so we do much to foster relationships with administrators and health counselors from those schools. An important part of the building of relationships with schools is to visit them and to have them, in turn, visit MVTC – a teen treatment center for adolescents with anxiety and related disorders. We would encourage schools interested in learning more about MV to contact Carl Lovejoy, Associate Execute Director for External Relations, to schedule a tour and an opportunity to meet with our staff. Carl can be reached at clovejoy@mountainvalleytreatment.org.One such recent visit to MV was made by Kim Ross and Marge Cook from Brewster Academy (www.brewsteracademy.org) in Wolfeboro, NH. After her visit, Kim, Brewster’s Dean of Academic Support Programs, wrote:

“Dear Carl, Don, Jen, Greg and all who are a part of making MVTC such a special place,

Our day with you was so special and we truly appreciate the time you spent with us! For everyone to gather around to meet us was truly an exceptional welcome! You are all an incredibly talented community of people who have created a program that offers young people an opportunity to feel safe and valued while they work to understand and face their anxiety or whatever challenges they face. The holistic and comprehensive care approach sets you apart from so many other centers. The exposure curriculum was so fascinating for us to hear about as well as having an opportunity to have Greg bring us around to visit the horses. Marge and I walked away feeling filled with excitement, inspiration, and hope for the young people you support. Clearly, you all provide a life changing experience for young people! We look forward to partnering with you in the very near future to discuss teacher training and/or student placement. Lets stay in touch!

Healthiest regards, Kim
