Frank Massino is a licensed clinical psychologist by training, and has worked in a number of
therapeutic milieus during his career--inpatient psychiatric hospitals; community-based outpatient clinics; and private practice, to name a few.
On a more personal note Frank has a member of his nuclear family who has also struggled with issues related to mental health. So, Frank has experienced the delivery of mental health services as the family member of a loved one, as well. From both sides of the mental health equation, he has seen programs that have been run well and have made a difference, and he has seen those that have left much to be desired.No program has inspired him as much as SBS.
Approximately 15 years ago, he was the Director of Mental Health services in a privately-owned facility servicing clients and their families in NYC.Despite the organization's potential, the Executive Director was a corporate attorney who struggled to run the organization--mainly because he failed to understand the clients' and families' challenges, and therefore was unable to structure the organization in a way that effectively met their needs. During his tenure, there was a 200% turnover rate of staff, and he saw the quality of client services begin to suffer. In response, he began to re-specialize focus to address organizational design and leadership development, in the
hopes that the facility's potential could be realized. Through that process, he developed a passion for applying his skills to help organizations get "healthier," and founded a consulting firm, the Institute for Performance Advancement, LLP, based in NYC. Since its inception, he has worked with for-profit and non-profit organizations of varying sizes with a range of challenges across industries.
He first heard about Step By Step when he called as a clinical reference on behalf of a potential client.As he learned more about the program, he was truly inspired that a program had gotten the clinical model "right." He agreed to become Step By Step’s Chairman of the Board and along with
the help of a dedicated Board and staff has helped guide Step by Step to where it is now positioned as a healthy and sustainable program that endeavors to lead the field in providing supportive services necessary to increase its clients' independence.
