duPont Manual's Mental Health Practitioner
Elise Christensen, LCSW
I am the Mental Health Practitioner here at Manual/YPAS. This is my second year in this position. Prior to working at Manual, I provided mental health therapy services at Seven Counties Services for 10 years. I obtained my Masters at UofL School of Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I know that the last 6-7 months have been difficult for many of you, for multiple different reasons. I will be providing Telehealth sessions throughout NTI 2.0 to help support the needs of our students. There is a google form that you (parent, student or teacher) can use to request a check in with a counselor or MHP (me), we will make sure that you have access to that form soon. I am asking that each of you please practice self care, as I said before we are all experiencing difficult times right now, and self care is a simple way you can begin to cope with your feelings and stress. Here is a link for some basic self-care strategies to get you started! I am looking forward to starting up my services again this school year.
