Laryah Moyle, BSW

Youth & Young Adult Coordinator, HT Grant

laryah@pmhca.org

Laryah is the Youth and Youth Adult (YAYA) Coordinator at Youth MOVE PA. She completed the Social Work Program at Bloomsburg University, earning her BSW in 2019. Applying her experience, she worked with at-risk adolescents in a residential setting. Through her journey, she recognized a lack of autonomy and resources for youth, highlighting the necessity for positive change for service recipients and their families. Moreover, Laryah provided home health assistance, supporting individuals in independent living. Dealing with personal challenges like anxiety and observing loved one's struggle with substance use and mental health challenges, she feels compelled to support others and advocate for recovery. In her leisure time, she enjoys singing and engaging in craft activities.


Sources of Strength (SOS) Staff


Dan Krupinsky, BA, CRS

SOS Project Coordinator

dan@pmhca.org

Dan Krupinsky (he/him/his) entered the behavioral health field in 2023 when he became a Certified Recovery Specialist and, shortly thereafter, a member of both PMHCA and PaPSC. As a proud graduate of Penn State’s Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications, he is excited to use the skills that he has gained and honed over years of working with and in front of the public to do good and make a difference in his home state of Pennsylvania. Despite entering the behavioral health field as a professional relatively recently, he has years of experience working with children and young adults in various volunteer positions and is thrilled to finally be able to do it full-time. In his free time, Dan loves being active, exploring new places and attending live shows (especially music and comedy), as well as reading and watching too many TV shows and movies.

SOS Training Specialist

mandie@pmhca.org

Mandie worked as a physical therapist assistant in nursing homes from 2008-2020.

She completed her bachelor’s degree in 2023 while working at Lowe’s regional distribution center. After finishing her degree, Mandie became a part-time substitute teacher for the local school districts and enjoyed working with youth and young adults. Mandie is currently working toward a master’s degree in public health at Chamberlain University. In her free time, she spends time with her two children, her parents, her poodle, and her cat. She also likes travelling and watching old television shows.
