Courage in an Unprecedented Year

Courage in an Unprecedented Year

Our world was confronted with a global pandemic along with a reckoning of systemic racism. In a time when schools and support systems closed and learning issues and anxiety amplified, CHC continued to serve families by pivoting to telehealth and distance learning options.

Chief Psychiatrist & Medical Director

This last year was a vivid reminder of my Hippocratic Oath. First do no harm and help the ill, I had promised as I started medical school. While I was not able to work in the COVID units, providing uninterrupted care and support to all our clients and families was a driving force for me through the last year. Today, witnessing the ongoing mental health fallout of the pandemic has only strengthened my resolve to forge ahead and broaden our reach to those in need. Thank you for making this work possible for all of us here at CHC.
