Tips to help relive back to school anxiety

Mental Health Treatment is Available in the Connellsville Area School District
Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services is providing mental health therapy to students who are in need during the school day. School Based Therapy services can be obtained by contacting the School Counselor or by calling Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services Program Manager.
Therapy will be provided at the school during school hours while maintaining the same confidentiality standards as a traditional office or clinic. Due to COVID-19 and complexity of returning to school, we are also offering telehealth services. For our telehealth option, our therapist work with the School Personnel and the students schedule in order for the student to be able to attend therapy.
