Holiday Edition 2022
A Season of Thanks

Working with you to support the mission of Bradley Hospital is the greatest privilege of my career. Of all the opportunities there are to make a difference for children, I personally choose Bradley Hospital—this unique institution and the gem in the crown of Rhode Island’s healthcare landscape—for my charitable giving because I know it makes the absolute best of use of my gift. Our collective gratitude for your support throughout the year is both heartfelt and true, and I hope you will stay by our side as we navigate history’s worst crisis in children’s behavioral health.

There are many ways to support Bradley Hospital and honor friends and family during this season of giving; below I share a few examples. But please know that your gift is just as valuable in February or June as it is today. If now is not the time, please tuck these ideas away and share them as occasions arise – the need is always here. May you enjoy good health and pleasure this holiday season and in the new year.

With gratitude,
Anne Morton Smith
Chief Development Officer

Given the economic hardship faced by many of Bradley's patients and their families, we hope you will join the Bradley Hospital department of social work in a special fundraising effort to help us provide families with basic necessities, as well as gift cards to empower them to do their own holiday shopping.

Bradley Hospital's "Adopt a Unit" Inpatient
and Residential Program Funds

A dedicated, flexible fund for each of Bradley Hospital’s inpatient and residential programs allows our staff to address the needs of acute and residential patients as they arise. It allows them to be both creative and innovative and to meet each child and adolescent “where they are” in their treatment plan. The needs of each milieu changes over time – some groups benefit from meditation and calming exercises, others from presentations about substance use or a special exercise program.

Instilling Gratitude in Children

Children are not born grateful – that is a fact! Gratitude must be taught. But, the question still remains, how and when do kids learn to be truly grateful for what they have? And, how do we as parents and caregivers instill gratitude in our children? Learn more with Jamie Turcotte, a licensed mental health counselor in the SafeQuest Program at Bradley Hospital.
