Avengers of Understanding
We are the Avengers of Understanding!
The idea for the name of our team came from a love of superheroes and a passion to fighting the stigma around mental illness and addiction.
This the second year that the Adolescent Unit of Carrier Clinic will be walking under the banner of the Avengers of Understanding. The staff of the adolescent unit are committed to working with adolescents ages 12 to 18 using compassion, humor, art, music, and sports. All those who work on this unit are passionate about working with teens in crisis and helping them on their journey to wellness and recovery.
We integrate music therapy, art therapy, yoga, sports, meditation, mindfulness, and DBT skills into our daily practice. We view each child as a unique person but also part of a unique group experience.
Your donations will help us to continue funding for our programs and get more supplies for music therapy, art therapy, yoga, and fund our equine therapy programing.
We thank you in advance for your donation and commitment to helping teens in crisis and recovery.
I hope you will join us and become a member of our team and start raising funds in support of the important work that Carrier Clinic does every day. By joining our team you help to give hope to people being treated for psychiatric, emotional, behavioral, and addictive disorders...and you help to put an end to the stigma associated with mental illness.
