Medical Clinical Support

In keeping with Brehm’s holistic model,

the medical and clinical support team

addresses the mind, body, and spirit

of each student.

The medical and clinical support team consists of highly experienced, dedicated, and qualified nursing administrators, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, social workers, counselors and clinical psychologists — who continuously assess the medical, psychiatric and psychological needs of our students.

The clinical team makes recommendations to physicians, psychologists, and psychiatrists both locally and at home. Nurses manage student medications, coordinate appointments, keep parents updated, and are present on campus from 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. on school days and are on-call after hours and on weekends.

Through the clinical team, students have the opportunity to participate in support groups such as the Formalized Social Skills Group, Transition Support Group, Adoption Group, Women’s Empowerment Group, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy Group.

Through direct education and counseling of students, as well as coordination with teachers, the residential staff, and Brehm’s kitchen staff, the medical and clinical support team promotes healthy lifestyle choices such as proper nutrition, diet, personal hygiene, and exercise. This ensures that each student is in the best possible physical and emotional health to benefit from the Brehm experience.
