Coleen Merlo, LMSW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR / MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION IN SUFFOLK COUNTY, INC.

“SOS was instrumental in helping mental health practitioners gain the skills and confidence to start their own practices. In assessing the need for more mental health referrals on the East end, we found that there were many people who had the clinical skills and desire, but were at a loss as to how to get started. SOS came in and helped individuals set up their private practices; everything from getting on insurance panels, to outreaching and engaging client, to how to document. Jennifer and Linda have applied innovative approaches to their own successful practice. Their ability to manage their business effectively provides positive outcomes for the people they serve. If you are considering starting a private practice, SOS can help make the process less daunting .”
