Adolescent Unit

Brooklyn Mooney, a sophomore at Sacred Heart High School, helped raise $2500 toward the purchase of playground equipment at Pine Grove’s Child and Adolescent Unit. Brooklyn is the 2014 scholarship recipient of the Leaf Foundation and will represent The Pine Belt at Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen Pageant in Vicksburg this June as Miss Pearl River Valley’s Outstanding Teen.  As part of her community service outreach, she has chosen to work with Pine Grove. 


Brooklyn reached out to Pine Grove’s Audra Cummings, director of Business Development and Virginia Jones, director of Patient Care Services to research the type of children Pine Grove serves on its Child and Adolescent unit.  


Brooklyn interviewed Pine Grove’s Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Patricia Calabrese, as part of her research to obtain clinical feedback on the effects of bullying. Brooklyn suffered from being bullied as a school age child and chose “Pacer Teens Against Bullying” as her platform to spread awareness on how bullying affects victims.
