"Boulder Psychological Services has provided September High School with ongoing organizational and board support for the past 18 months. Our organization has been going through an administrative and leadership transition with the hiring a new principal for the first time in 23 years, and with a Board that has 8 new members and only one remaining member from the previous principal’s tenure. BPS has been hands–on, coming to several board meetings, facilitating board retreats, attending weekly meetings with our principal, and bi-monthly meetings with the board president and principal. More recently, BPS has assisted us in creating our mission and vision statements, and currently is indispensable in helping us to translate those statements into practical strategic plans and to do’s to carry out our vision. BPS’ support and guidance has been invaluable to us as we develop the school under its new leadership and expanded programming. It has been wonderful to have Boulder Psychological Services as a resource that we can look to as we continue to move forward."
Sarah Hoskin Clymer, Board President, September High School
The HOPE Coalition is a grassroots organization that addresses the stigma around depression and suicide. Jan Hittelman was one of the founding members. We offer free events for the community and often have partnered with BPS on our annual HOPE event. This presentation is especially for youth and parents on determining warning signs and risk factors for depression/suicide. Also, therapists from BPS have presented at our annual Gatekeeper's event. Having BPS as a resource for the HOPE Coalition as well as for the entire community is truly a blessing.
