About the CVC

Community Voices Clinic

The Community Voices Clinic (CVC) is a school-based mental health clinic operating within the family centers at Donegan Elementary and Broughal Middle schools.


The CVC was formed in 2012 through a partnership between the Bethlehem Area School District, St. Luke’s Health Network, and Lehigh University's Counseling Psychology program.


The CVC is overseen by Dr. Christopher Connacher,  a licensed psychologist and Counseling Psychology faculty member.  The CVC is also a training site for graduate students from Lehigh’s College of Education; it is fully staffed by graduate students in Counseling Psychology from Lehigh University, including doctoral students serving as clinical supervisors and master’s students as interns / counselors-in-training.

 The CVC embraces core tenants of Counseling Psychology including evidence-based practice, multicultural competence, and social justice in all of its activities.

Community Voices Clinic is not a crisis clinic. In case of emergencies, please call 9-1-1.
