Providing Training to Widen Edgewood’s Impact

The Edgewood Institute was relaunched in 2020 and builds on our long tradition in the mental health and social services fields. The Institute will provide professional training to a high-impact cross-section of practitioners that include Edgewood staff, its partnering agencies and organizations, community-based organizations, and the public at large. Building on over 170 years of service and expertise, the Edgewood Institute will provide training in topics such as Family Therapy, Telehealth, Reflective Supervision, and Post Pandemic Mental Health.

What We Do

The work of the Edgewood Institute will focus on four pillars of training, advocacy, and research work: 1) outcomes evaluation of our programs, 2) research and evaluation, 3) training of our own staff and peer agencies, and 4) advocacy. The goals of these pillars are to measure the impact of our own direct service; use our outcomes and our research to inform the field; provide high quality training and professional development to our staff and beyond, and advocate on behalf of young people and their families.
