TAMPA, FL, USA, September 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- National Center for Performance Health announced today that it has launched its Academic Champion program at The Collaboratory Preparatory Academy, in Tampa, FL. The implementation of this program is being funded by a grant from Children Across Borders.

Academic Champion was designed by leading psychiatrist, Dr. Rahul Mehra, for use in K-12, colleges, universities, and graduate schools. It destigmatizes, raises awareness, and improves access for students whose academic performance has been impeded by emotional challenges. Through prevention, early intervention, and a multi-tiered system of supports, Academic Champion increases school safety and improves student success. The program features 24/7/365 access to a licensed clinician experienced to triage academic performance concerns, protocols for early identification of high-risk students, on-site trainings for students, staff, and families.

Children Across Borders is a 501 c(3) organization led by well-known philanthropists Vivek and Sharmila Seth. It provides financial and non-financial support to children-focused, non-profit, grass roots organizations primarily in the areas of education, health, housing and wellness across the United States and India. Their work is personally driven with adherence to high standards and accountability, leading to a positive impact on our community and the country.

Academic Champion is thought to be the only physician led evidence-based healthcare program in the country focused on improving mental health and emotional wellbeing. The innovative program improves learning, concentration, impulse control, short-term memory, and positively impacts academic performance. Given the national, statewide, and local mental health “crisis” in schools, this unique approach of normalizing emotional well-being and increasing access to healthcare is positioned to rapidly expand.

“The team at NCPH is very passionate about helping children to manage stress and improve performance,” said Rahul Mehra M.D., CEO and Chief Physician Executive of the National Center for Performance Health. “Our Academic Champion program is specifically designed to remove the stigmatism around mental health and help children achieve their maximum potential.”
