Wendy Blanchard, M.S., CHHC, CPS is a holistic health counselor/practitioner, drugless practitioner, and mental health educator. Wendy is a survivor of lifelong addiction and co-occurring disorders, and thrives in her recovery through implementing natural and organic solutions. Wendy’s book, “WRITE PRAY RECOVER:A JOURNEY TO WELLNESS THROUGH SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS AND SELF CARE” is set to be released in late 2021.

Wendy is a Recovery Specialist, Certified Peer Specialist, and Certified Holistic Health Counselor/Practitioner focusing on her “Wellness Approach to Recovery!” Wendy is a trained mental health educator by the National Council for Behavioral Health in Mental Health First Aid, and Youth Mental Health First Aid, and by the Suicide Prevention Center of N.Y. in Suicide Safety for Schools. In addition, she is certified by the Office of Mental Health N.Y.S. as a Certified Peer Specialist. Wendy trains educators, administrators, support staff, families and students in Mental Health & Wellness Literacy, which she created and recently piloted to educators, support staff, administrators, and social workers to rave reviews,  including a trauma informed approach component for which she is trained. She has also recently created and piloted a new workshop entitled “Whole Person Wellness:Reset Your Mindset, Reignite Your Health, Recharge Your Life” also to rave reviews, in addition to “Whole Person Wellness – The Gut/Brain Axis,” and “Whole Person Wellness – A Wellness Approach to Recovery” which is for those living with Substance/Alcohol Use Disorder and Mental Illness/Co-Occurring Disorders.

Wendy is one of the creators, alongside six other professionals from the Mental Health Association of NYS, of the original MHANYS Mental Health & Wellness 101 training which supports the Mental Health Education Law of NYS. Wendy has also worked with a number of public school districts to head up, and co-facilitate their Mental Health Awareness Committees.

Further, Wendy is trained in “How to Implement Social and Emotional Learning using Conflict Resolution and Restorative Practices-A CRC Model”, “SEL as a Lever for Equity and Social Justice”, “Emotional Literacy”, “Mental Health Education Law”, “Trauma Informed Approach”, “Spiritual Wellness”, “SafeTalk”, “De-Escalation” and “Motivational Interviewing.”

Wendy works privately as well with clients in her private practice who are seeking to implement sustainable lifestyle changes through natural and organic solutions using an Integrative Approach through the body, mind and spirit connection, and if the client chooses to use both recovery models of a holistic approach, and a traditional medical approach, Wendy works as part of the treatment team. Clients feel supported, encouraged and safe working with Wendy who has the lived experience of SUD and mental health recovery, as well as being certified as a Peer Specialist.

Wendy has three adult children, Matthew, Nicole, and Olivia, a loving “soul daughter”, Sarah, of 20 years, a 13 year old granddaughter, Rosie, and a newborn granddaughter, Harper, and lives in Orange County, NY., where she presently teaches in the Newburgh School District.”
