Psychiatric Social Worker

Amber Kline is a psychiatric social worker at the Capitol District Psychiatric Center in Albany, NY. Amber is part of a team (including a psychiatrist and a nurse) that provides comprehensive evaluations of patients brought into the facility, to determine whether the patient is in need of hospitalization or can be released with a referral for follow-up care. In this position, she works with a wide range of patients "across the socioeconomic spectrum," she notes, including children and the homeless mentally ill. Right after graduating NYU, she was a crisis worker at the Albany County Children's Mental Health Center. "I always knew that I wanted to go into social work," she said, "and I knew I wanted to be in a clinical program in Manhattan. NYU was a perfect match."
