CHCA is thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with The Cincinnati Anxiety Center (CAC) in an effort to make on-campus mental health services available to our Upper School students in grades 9-12. Our hope in providing this on-site service is that it will help eliminate some of the barriers students may have to receiving mental health care, including time and travel constraints.
Through this partnership, the CAC has hired a Christian counselor, Jeremy Nelson, LPCC to provide counseling services in our MSL building beginning in January. Mr. Nelson graduated in 2010 from Taylor University with a Bachelor degree in Psychology and then went on to receive a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2013. He is an independently Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) who has worked in multiple settings providing direct psychological services and program design.
Our hope is that this will create an open door for students who desire services and that this will foster collaboration between parents, teachers, and administrators when addressing behavioral and emotional concerns. This partnership will also enable our staff to be educated on mental health issues and strategies to help students inside and outside the classroom.
Of this opportunity, Mr. Nelson shares, “My passion for serving others came from early years of watching the mental health struggles of loved ones and wanting to do more to help them. My journey led me to learn more about the science of the mind and how it intersected with my Christian faith on important mental health topics. I have a passion for destigmatizing mental health, improving access to treatment, providing extensive psychoeducation, and the utilization of best practice, evidence-based treatment approaches to bring about lasting change.”
