Alumni and Family Liaison Team

Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center's Alumni and Family Liaisons are a clinician-led team dedicated to supporting alumni and their family members throughout their mental health journey. They provide ongoing support via phone and email outreach, alumni events, support groups, social recovery communities and other resources. The overall goal is to provide you and your support network with the resources needed to maintain and progress throughout your mental health journey.

Alumni Email Communications

Pathlight offers email communications from our Alumni and Family Liaison Team, all of which highlight different resources including virtual support groups, upcoming events, blogs, Mental Note podcast and additional hands-on practical tools. This entire team is dedicated to working with both patients and their families, ensuring you continue to have supportive touchpoints after you discharge from treatment. Whether you need words of encouragement or referrals for outpatient treatment, our team is here to support you.
