MNU 2017 Master of Arts in Counseling graduate Jeffrey Wilson (middle first row) is part of the expanded Johnson County Mental Health Center’s co-responder program. Featured in this month's JOCO magazine, the co-responder program supports local police in dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues by having a mental health professional to accompany police officers on calls that involve potential mental health issues. The goal is to provide individuals quicker access to mental health services.

Jeffrey is a private practice psychotherapist in Olathe who also works part-time as a mental health professional in the co-responder program. Previously an HR professional, Jeffrey returned to school to earn a master's degree and retool for a whole new career in 2014.
