Therapy

“Together therapy panelists and program staff have worked hard to create and streamline protocol around the mental health services available to GWN mentors and mentees, ensuring that mentees can utilize the support and guidance offered, and that mentors can focus on what they do best.” Julie May, Licensed Psychoanalyst and GWN Therapy Panel Coordinator

We want our mentees to bring their whole selves to their writing, to be fully present in their work and mentoring relationships, but we recognize that to do so requires our support.

So we offer mental health resources and services through a panel of pro bono licensed mental health professionals available to consult with Girls Write Now staff and mentors, to provide ongoing training for all mentors, and to counsel select mentees. Our Therapy Panel enables staff and mentors to focus on our mission—writing and mentoring—while recognizing  the multi-dimensional nature of a trusting mentoring relationship and the holistic needs of teen girls, making it possible to thrive academically and creatively under difficult circumstances.
