As the admissions clinician and manager, Nicole May, LICSW, oversees the day to day operations of the Admissions department and facilitates the flow of cases. She is directly involved in the admission of almost all incoming patients, assessing, educating, and facilitating the process. As the Human Rights and Privacy Officer, she is involved in educating, advocating for, and assisting staff and patients in exercising their rights to privacy and fair treatment.
In addition to Ms. May’s roles here at Austen Riggs, she is involved in crisis assessment and intervention work through her local community mental health clinic. Her involvement with this organization allows her to both bring a broader knowledge and understanding of issues affecting different populations to her work at Riggs, and also for her to bring parts of the psychodynamic approach to the local community.
For the past few years, Ms. May has been involved in fundraising for and participated in the awareness walk for the local chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
