At the Italian Home, he managed all clinical and medical components of the school’s model, supervised and recruited staff, and oversaw the clinical internship program.

Mr. Prince developed an interest in child mental health early on in his career while serving as a Clinical Associate III at the Walker Home and School in Needham, Mass., where he practiced individual psychotherapy, family therapy and case management. Mr. Prince’s extensive background of involvement with at-risk children makes him a wonderful leader of the Baker’s Manville School.
