Expert offers mental health counseling at school

A local health expert is helping children cope with tragedy or loss by offering mental health counseling at school.      

Sheila St. Amant is a licensed mental health practitioner employed by Alegent Creighton Health. She splits her time working at two Omaha public schools. Her help is free and referrals can come from almost anyone with concerns. Her goal is to recognize potential problems or issues before they turn into something larger, which in turn benefits all the students.

The school-based mental health program serves more than 350 families every year in four Omaha schools and two schools in Council Bluffs. It is funded through Alegent Creighton Health and grants.
