• Women in the Behavioral Health Industry: Why Executive Leadership Needs a New, Female Face

    When universal education activist and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai addressed the United Nations in 2013, she pointed out that “we cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” Her words resonated with women’s rights advocates as she boldly confronted an inequity that still needs to be addressed today, especially in the behavioral health field.


  • Continuing Care Plan Adherence Following Residential Addiction Treatment

    Common sense suggests that greater patient adherence to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment recommendations is associated with better outcomes. Surprisingly, however, there is limited previous research systematically investigating the adherence-outcome relationship in the context of SUD treatment.


Erin  Munroe

Erin works as a licensed mental health counselor at the South Boston Community Health Center. She sees children, adolescents, and families experiencing a range of issues—including trauma, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorders, adjustment disorders, and more. Erin's position at the health center started as a part-time position in their confidential teen clinic, where Erin still provides counseling and support to teenagers struggling with everything from college applications to talking to their parents about pregnancy. 

Erin has worked in the mental health field since 2001. She has worked with adolescents in schools as a licensed School Guidance Counselor and Adjustment Counselor and outside of school as a licensed mental health counselor. She dedicated herself to the field after working with a program whose goal was to reunite families whose children had been taken away due to abuse and neglect. A major portion of this job was educating parents on how to be the best parents they could be. The rewarding part was watching parents and guardians implement these strategies and gain success as a family unit. 

Following this experience, Erin attended Boston University where she earned her graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine. As an undergraduate, Erin attended the College of the Holy Cross, where she majored in English and completed significant coursework in Deaf Studies. 

Erin also provides trainings in Self-Care, Relaxation, Life Balance, and Identifying and Managing Mental Illness in the Classroom.
