Recently, the Millersburg Area School District received grant funding to provide mental health resources to our school community during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This Wellness Wisdom series was developed by TrueNorth Wellness Services. True North is a trauma-informed care agency that strives to create a safe environment of trusting relationships and a culture of hope and healing where all will thrive. True North Wellness Services has been providing communities with behavioral health and wellness programs for over forty years.
Several presentations for students and parents/staff will be available this spring. Student presentations will occur during the school day. These presentations will be LIVE in a virtual format by the TrueNorth staff with students participating with their teachers. Presentations for parents/staff will occur via Zoom in the evening. Both student and parent/staff presentations will be recorded and posted on this webpage for later viewing.

About the Presenter:
My name is Jennifer Finn, M.A.
I graduated in December 2020 with a Master's in Applied Clinical Psychology. I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at West Chester University in 2018. I've interned and worked in the mental health field since 2015 where I spent a lot of time practicing within the child and adolescent population. As an undergraduate student, my internship experiences included co-leading an after-school crisis intervention program for teens in West Philadelphia and interning at an Autism clinic in West Chester, Pa. In graduate school I worked part-time for 2.5 years at TrueNorth as a therapeutic staff support for children with ASD and behavioral health diagnoses. I also worked as a crisis intervention specialist for TrueNorth at their York office. During my master's program, I interned for a year at Mazzitti and Sullivan Counseling Services where I led intensive outpatient group therapy 4x a week for teens struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health diagnoses. Currently I am a school-based therapist for TrueNorth and am working on my professional counseling license (LPC) for the state of Pennsylvania.
