From Research to Real-World Impact: Dr. Yvonne Lee-Long’s Dedication to Family and Behavioral Health

Dr. Yvonne S. Lee-Long , a licensed Graduate Social Worker, has been practicing since 2011. She holds a PhD in social work with a focus on Family Intervention and Preservation, where her research explored the relationships between stress, family support, and family resources among custodial grandparents in Appalachia.

An entrepreneur, Yvonne owns “My September Case Management,” which assists aged and disabled waiver participants. Additionally, she runs “F.A.I.T.H Behavioral Support,” a licensed behavioral health center she recently opened. At this center, she provides case management for children with Serious Emotional Disorder waivers and offers wraparound services. Yvonne has been working as a therapist for five years under contract.

Active in her community, Yvonne serves on the boards of West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy and the WV Child Advocacy Network. She also held an appointment to the Advisory Council Grandparents committee, where she contributed to the Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act supporting grandparents raising grandchildren. As a member of the Charleston Institute Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Inc., the WV ACES coalition, and the Kanawha Chapter of the NAACP, Yvonne is deeply involved in mentoring, advocating for, and leading at-risk youth in her community.
