Mindpath Health acquires Acacia Counseling and Wellness to expand mental health services to college students in the United States
Grounded in community spirit and a dedication to collective well-being, Acacia was founded by renowned psychologists and former academic advisors Dr. Keith Higginbotham and dr. Brett Donnelly in 2014. Acacia Counseling and Wellness provides traditional counseling and psychotherapy, and offers workshops, sessions with therapy animals, wellness activities, and more. The founders of Acacia will bring this commitment and these principles to their work with Mindpath Health.
“We wanted to expand our services to serve university students nationwide,” said Dr. Keith Higginbotham, CEO of Acacia Counseling and Wellness. “Mindpath Health shares the same mission and long-term goals and we look forward to continuing our work with university students as part of the Mindpath Health team.”
According to a recent report, Under Pressure: At the Heart of the College Mental Health Crisis published by APM Reports, “Colleges have seen a substantial increase in the number of students with depression seeking mental health services over the past decade. Large numbers of students are reporting depression, anxiety and consider suicide, and those numbers have been rising. In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that a quarter of 18- to 24-year-olds surveyed said they had seriously considered suicide in the past 30 days.”
