Saint Ursula Academy Partners with UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute for Parent Speaker Event

Parent Speaker Series - UC

Cincinnati, Ohio, September 10, 2018 –   Later this month, parents of Saint Ursula Academy students will have the opportunity to learn about mental health from the experts at University of Cincinnati’s Gardner Neuroscience Institute in the first installment of the SUA Counseling Department’s Parent Speaker Series.

Part of Saint Ursula Academy’s mission is to provide caring support for each student's academic, emotional, social, psychological, and physical needs.  One of the ways we focus on their emotional and psychological needs is our Parent Speaker Series, facilitated by our Counseling Department. 

On Thursday, September 27, Saint Ursula will welcome experts Joseph P. Broderick, MD; Kathleen M. Chard, PhD; and Caleb (Cal) Adler, MD, all from the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute, into the Academy to discuss ways we can help our students deal with stressful situations.  Especially in light of recent traumatic events, Saint Ursula realizes that young women may struggle with processing some of the anger and violence we hear about in the news.  This special event, with a focus on Posttraumatic Stress, will give parents advice and information about how to help their daughters process stressful events in their lives.

This event is open to all parents and friends of Saint Ursula Academy.  For more information, or to register to attend, please visit
