Matthew Griepp, M.D.
“There is a high level of expertise being brought to bear here, delivering customizable treatments in a flexible setting with residential, inpatient and outpatient care.”
Dr. Matthew Griepp serves in the dual role of attending psychiatrist across all adult transitional living programs (TLPs) at Silver Hill, as well as the director of the hospital’s newly inaugurated fellowship program in the treatment of complex psychiatric disorders.
He champions the therapeutic value of the multi-week residential care in Silver Hill’s TLPs. “We have the opportunity to think in an intensive way about all aspects of our patients’ unique mental health struggles and needs, from multiple perspectives, including the challenges they face in their lives outside the hospital,” says Dr. Griepp. “We have a chance to pull together these different pieces, to potentially offer each person a truly transformative experience.”
Dr. Griepp is equally enthusiastic about the other side of his responsibilities: directing the hospital’s doctoral-level training program. “Our fellowship program offers outstanding early career professionals in psychiatry, psychology, nursing and social work the opportunity to study and practice evidence-based psychotherapies across Silver Hill’s three seamless levels of care,” he says.
Besides the learning experience provided to the fellows , Dr. Griepp notes that the fellowship program makes the institution better as well. “The outsides sources of teaching and knowledge brought in for the fellowship can foster a culture of learning that benefits both the fellowship and the rest of hospital staff,” Dr. Griepp says. “Plus, as a teacher, you learn to think more critically about what you’re doing and saying, because now you’re accountable for it.”
