Jeannie V Pasacreta, Psychiatric Nurse  in Newtown
“My expertise and passion relates to the expanding need for quality, compassionate services aimed at managing the physical & emotional consequences of chronic stress especially as it relates to family violence & chronic medical illness. I am motivated by an observation of enhanced psychiatric vulnerability related to proliferating stress & diminishing support that increasingly characterize modern life. While life expectancy & responsibilities proliferate, globalization limits support and increases stress. Paradoxically, quality mental health services are diminishing while demand increases exponentially. Services aimed at rising depression rates & maladaptive behaviors linked to our national obesity crisis are 2 areas where urgent need and my expertise coincide.
