Families Helping Families
We encourage families of Skyland Trail graduates to stay connected with our community. There are many ways to give back and support families at an earlier stage of their recovery journey.
Other Ways Alumni Families Can Help
Write a Letter
Can you write a letter about your family's experience at Skyland Trail? We might share it as a testimonial with other families, board members and donors. We might also pull quotes from it to share on our website or social media. If you're comfortable using your name that's fine, or we can attribute your letter to "an alumni family." We are committed to protecting your privacy.
Post a Review
Consider posting an online review about your experience. Online reviews can significantly influence treatment decisions. Sharing your experience might help other families determine if Skyland Trail might be the right program for their loved one. Popular review sites include: google, yahoo, and yelp.
Speak at STEP
Skyland Trail hosts weekly Support, Training, and Education Program events for current and alumni families in our adult mental health treatment programs. If you are interested in serving as a resource for client families in this way, please let us know.
Serve as a Reference
Some families considering treatment at Skyland Trail ask to speak with an alumni family for a first-hand perspective. If you would be willing to receive occasional calls from prospective client families, we will share your interest with our admissions team.
Please contact Laura Danze if you are interested in any of these opportunities to help.
