PAL Providers

Social worker

The PAL Program has a full-time social worker – Mollie Shirman, MSW – who can assist with finding mental health resources for patients with any type of insurance (state, private or no insurance). This service may be accessed in these ways:

  • Primary care providers (PCPs) may call and ask to speak directly to a PAL social worker to discuss local resources.
  • While speaking with our PAL psychiatrist, therapies or resources may be suggested. In this instance, a PAL social worker will pull a list of these resources, tailored to the patient’s location and insurance availability.

In all instances, PAL will fax the social work resource list to the PCP’s office. This may be shared with the patient and their family. For more information on PAL social work services, please call the PAL Program.
