Do you worry a lot? Are you struggling in school? Do you feel sad some or most of the time?
These are questions that are important to ask yourself. Just know that if you agree with one or all of the questions, you are not alone.
Hancock Health and Greenfield-Central School Corporation has teamed up to create the C.H.A.T (Caring Helping Assisting Teens) program for students to help them with these sorts of feelings they may be having. C.H.A.T was created to provide in-school services for students at the Greenfield-Central High School and Junior High.
C.H.A.T. makes it easier for students to access someone who understands these feelings during their time at school. Sessions will be held at the school, so it’s more convenient for students and parents.
Tricia Ring is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience under her belt. She was hired thanks to a new partnership between the school district and Hancock Health.
Tricia’s office is an inviting atmosphere where kids are able to come by themselves, have someone to listen to, and support their success in school. With this being at the high school and middle school, it allows flexibility to work around the best time for the student.
Insurance is accepted through this program and can be used by any student that attends Greenfield Central High School or Greenfield-Central Middle School. Tricia’s splits her time between both locations. Below is a quick look at her schedule:
High School: Monday-Wednesday, during school hours
Junior High: Thursday-Friday, during school hours
