Fran Chelli, LCSW, LSW
DIRECTOR, Meadows Outpatient Services-Las Vegas
Born in Brooklyn and raised in Staten Island, New York, Fran Chelli completed her undergraduate studies at The College of Staten Island, City University of New York before earning a master’s degree in social work from New York University.
A licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Nevada and a licensed social worker (LSW) in New York, Chelli relocated to Las Vegas in March 2006. She worked for the State of Nevada for a decade in a state psychiatric hospital serving serious mental illness (SMI) patients and their families. Simultaneously, Chelli held part-time positions as clinical director at two different local agencies until she joined the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare team in 2022.
Behavioral healthcare is actually Chelli’s second career. She worked in a law practice during high school, which became a full-time position after graduation. She earned paralegal studies certification and stayed for more than two decades while raising her two children. Helping people through that position inspired Chelli to want to do more for others.
Today, she serves others as interim director at Meadows Outpatient Center-Las Vegas where she is responsible for the overall operations of outpatient services. She says one of the best perks of the job is the opportunity to work with a wonderful, professional, and dedicated staff committed to the fulfillment of the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare mission.
Single with a grown son and daughter, Chelli is also a proud grandmother. She spends her downtime cooking for and spending time with family. She also enjoys reading for pleasure.

Our Partial Hospitalization program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization level of care is ideal for those who require stabilization and a safe space before transitioning to an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Average length of stay in our PHP spans four weeks, with an option to extend if deemed clinically appropriate. Program hours are increased at this level of care to allow for a focus on regulation in preparation to step down to our IOP. While programming is tailored to the individual’s needs, those in the partial hospitalization program routinely have 1-2 individual sessions each week, weekly psychiatry sessions, weekly family recovery virtual sessions, and neurofeedback sessions as needed.
PHP Level of Care Includes:
- 4-week length of stay (with option to extend)
- Programming 5 days per week, 5-6 hours per day
- Focus on stabilization, safety, and regulation
- Case management
- Preparation for IOP level of care
Group and one-on-one therapy is essential to our program, but we know that healing also happens through other avenues. That’s why we employ a wide range of methods and holistic options to ensure a well-rounded treatment experience that incorporates the mind, body, and soul.
We use innovative therapeutic techniques to identify and treat the underlying trauma of addictive and dysfunctional processes to help people find hope and healing. Convenient, comprehensive care is available.
