LATONYA M. BOLDEN ANNOUNCED NEW DIRECTOR OF MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
AT CHILD HEALTH INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP
ROANOKE, VA (Nov. 16, 2017) — Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke Valley is pleased to announce its recent hire of LaTonya Bolden, who will be joining the organization as the director of mental health services, a role responsible for providing counseling services to low income children and adults. LaTonya will also sit on the management team of Child Health Investment Partnership to ensure the integration of mental health services into the nonprofit’s logic model.
“My passion is providing treatment to those in need and who desire to address life’s challenges; psychotherapy happens to be an intricate part of my toolkit,” Bolden said. “I realized during a 10-minute conversation with my daughter, that my passion matched Child Health Investment Partnership’s mission—to change the lives of underserved children and their families—thus making the decision to join the organization an easy ‘yes’”
Bolden comes to Child Health Investment Partnership with a handful of valuable experience in behavioral health care and is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). Prior to joining Child Health Investment Partnership, Bolden held a position of program director for H&W Enterprises of North Carolina. Most recently, Bolden filled the role of an outpatient therapist at Blue Ridge Behavior Healthcare in Roanoke, and clinical social worker at Carilion Clinic Behavior Health in Roanoke where she facilitated therapeutic skills groups preparing patients on an inpatient psychiatric unit for discharge.
“I have the opportunity to walk alongside the children and caregivers as they discover new and effective ways of meeting life’s ongoing challenges and fostering a greater realization of their resiliency,” Bolden stated in reference to her new role. “I will utilize psychotherapy and interactive psychotherapy to humbly guide children and their caregivers through understanding the connection of the mind and the body and the impact on feelings.”
Bolden is tasked with providing mental health consultations to enrolled families and children, perform and document diagnostic assessments, treatment plan and progress reports, and provide individual, family and group therapy/counseling services in both a clinic and home-based setting, in additional to other critical roles within the organization.
