Perks and Programs

We asked Child Mind Institute to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Paid Parental Leave: We provide six (6) weeks paid parental leave after (i) the birth of the employee’s or the employee’s spouse or domestic partner’s child or (ii) the adoption of a dependent child by the employee or the employee’s spouse or domestic partner or the placement of a dependent child in the employee’s home for foster care by the employee or the employee’s spouse or domestic partner. Paid parental leave is available to all full-time and part-time employees who have completed at least one year of service.
  • Years of Service Award Program: At their five year anniversary, CMI recognizes employees' dedication and contributions to the organization with a specially designed service award and presentation during our quarterly All Staff Meetings.
  • Staff Appreciation Lunches: We hold monthly Staff Appreciation lunches to welcome new staff and celebrate birthdays. In November, we host a Thanksgiving-themed potluck lunch where staff contribute their favorite dishes and share a pre-Thanksgiving Day meal with their colleagues.
  • Visiting Professor Lecture Series: As part of our dedication to staff education, CMI hosts a Visiting Professor Lecture series, where we have guests address our staff to provide education on a range of mental health, learning disorders and research topics from field experts from around the country. This series also qualifies for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. After the lecture, staff can have lunch with the visiting professor.
  • Clinical Training: We offer six, 2-year post-doctoral fellowships as well as eight, 1-year clinical externships. Our trainees receive didactic style training in gold standard evidence-based treatments as well as direct case supervision. They participate in a variety of learning experiences including our multidisciplinary case conferences, clinical meetings with center staff, and lectures through our Visiting Professor Series. Trainees are also given the opportunity to give presentations at schools and local community organizations. They also have opportunities to collaborate with writers to create articles and posts for the Child Mind Institute website and other sites in relevant fields.
  • Brave Buddies: Brave Buddies is a group behavioral treatment program for children with the anxiety disorder, selective mutism (SM). Brave Buddies recruits 50 counselors each year from inside and outside the organization to provide one on one treatment to patients. Each counselor receives 16 hours of intensive training in the evidence-based treatment of SM as well as ongoing supervision from our licensed clinicians. These counselors then become part of the alumni network where they can volunteer for other opportunities and discuss career goals and planning with like-minded individuals.
  • Staff Activities: In response to employees' feedback on our 2016 Great Place to Work survey, we created a Staff Activities Committee that is led by staff members (no executives on the team). This Committee guides, organizes and produces all activities for staff to engage in, increasing camaraderie, team bonding and giving back to the community. The Committee has organized a Summer cocktail party; volunteer sandwich making at Central Synagogue; in collaboration with the New York Police Department, donation drive for those in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria; a holiday food drive to benefit City Harvest, and a year end holiday party in December.
