Biographical Sketch

Jenny Wilhoite, M.Ed, was the original "guinea pig" of Georgia HOPE's School-Based Mental Health Program. Jenny assisted in creating and implementing a successful and sustainable SBMH program in her starter school, which was written into a successful Georgia HOPE protocol for SBMH expansion. Georgia HOPE launched its SBMH program through a GAP grant, which started in two schools in one county in the first year, 12 schools in four counties the second year, and 29 schools in 7 counties in the current program year. Jenny is now SBMH Program Manager and oversees 20 of those schools, while still being a SBMH therapist in her original starter school of Woodlawn Elementary in Murray County.
