Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in learning more about our organization!
Milestones Mental Health Agency provides a variety of mental health services to children/adolescents (ages 5-17) with emotional/ behavioral disorders, as well as counseling services to the adults that care for them. We have been providing services to the families of Orleans and Jefferson parishes since 2000.
Services for children/adolescents include: Assessment, Treatment planning, Family and Individual Counseling, Skills Training, 24/7 Mobile Crisis Intervention Services, Parent Education, Medication Management, as well as ongoing collaboration with schools, pediatricians and other involved agencies/professionals. With the exception of Medication Management services, services can be scheduled in the home, school or appropriate community location (evenings and weekends, if needed).
Services for the adult caretakers of our clients include counseling in the home and/or an appropriate community location. Sessions can be provided evenings/weekends. We do not currently provide Medication Management services or Crisis Intervention Services for our adult clients, but we will assist in referrals for these services, if needed.
The founder and Director, Stacey Griffin, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who graduated from the Tulane School of Social Work in 1995. The clinical staff consists of Masters level mental health professionals only (licensed/ non-licensed counselors and social workers), as well as a contract Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist (Dr. Ellen Gandle). Background checks and drug testing are performed to ensure the safety of our staff and clients.
