Welcome back! Sorry I’ve been away for a while ~ Summer is keeping us busy! On July 15th, we offered a mini-conference on our ECT program at Carrier Clinic®, presented by our own Dr. Mehta and Melissa Curcy. We also had a presentation by Carol Kivler, who told us about her own experience with ECT treatment. The seminar was a success – lots of questions, and a lot of information was shared. Particularly touching was Carol’s personal accounts of ECT. You can check out her book and website at for more information on her battle with clinical depression. Thank you to Dr. Mehta, Melissa and Carol for an outstanding event!


Pet Therapy in NJ – Carrier Clinic® at New Jersey 12’s Pet Stop

Yesterday we had the fantastic opportunity to do a taping for New Jersey 12’s Pet Stop show about Carrier Clinic®’s Pet Therapy program. Angela Di Dolce, Clinical Supervisor at our East Mountain School, brought her therapy dog Bardo to the taping. Bardo was, as usual, well-behaved and lovable, and Angela did a great job explaining how our Pet Therapy program works to Dr. Brian T. Voynick, the Vet who hosts the show. We encourage everyone to tune in THIS Saturday and Sunday, July 24th and 25th, at either 12:30 or 4pm to catch our segment. I’ve posted a few pictures of our visit to News 12 New Jersey. Bardo’s sister, Java, also came along for the ride.

Somerset Patriots and Fireworks

Next Friday, July 30th, Carrier Clinic®is sponsoring the Somerset Patriots Game – with Fireworks! The Patriots are playing the Bridgeport Bluefish, so it should be a great game. The Patriots are an affordable night-out for families, and we encourage everyone to come out on the 30th to support the team, and help Carrier Clinic® celebrate 100 years in the community. Tickets for the Patriots are available at We’ll post pictures after the game, so check back in the beginning of August for my next post.
