Career Mentorship Program

Sylvia Brafman’s Career Mentorship program aims to channel the great potential for career success that many patients hold deep within, but have yet to realize due to the impact of mental health on their ability to move forward. The program is focused on helping patients succeed in their careers once they leave treatment. Personally designed and facilitated by CEO Jaime Blaustein, the Career Mentorship program consists of 5 phases: Contextualization, Reflection, Consideration, Preparation and Execution.

Navigating a career as someone who is recovering comes with its own set of challenges. We hold our patients’ hands as they navigate that process, which is often accompanied by fear of failure among other logistical headwinds. A general description of the process is as follows:
