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
