Lunch Break With The Village

Mental Health & Sports Therapy with The Connecticut Sun

July 20, 2022

We discussed how The Village has partnered with The Connecticut Sun to provide one-of-a-kind basketball clinics that enrich the sports-infused mental health therapies offered though our Extended Day Treatment (EDT) program thanks to Doc Wayne Youth Services, Inc.

We learned how…

  • The Sun are making a difference through their clinics
  • the EDT program helps children affected by significant trauma
  • sports-based therapies teach trust, teamwork, leadership and communication

Our guests were Melissa Aiello, Village Clinical Coordinator and Morgan Tuck, former Connecticut Sun forward and four-time UConn women’s basketball NCAA champion, now Director of Franchise Development for The Sun.
