Meet Board
Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Catherine Kwarteng

Ms. Kwarteng Nyarko is on a personal mission
to de-stigmatize mental health care and to “open the minds of people to
understand that mental health issues aren’t a label, but a disease like
diabetes or hypertension are bodily diseases.”

Growing up in Ghana, Africa, she always knew
she wanted to help others. Her mother, a nurse, was her role model. Innately
motivated to help people achieve better mental health and function, she
worked in healthcare in Ghana before moving to the United States 22 years
ago. She further pursued her passion, earning a Bachelor of Science in
nursing at Herbert Lehman College (CUNY) in New York City and a Master of
Science in nursing at Walden University in Minneapolis. 

“It makes my day and uplifts my spirits when
a patient who has come to me feeling down and not knowing what to do, tells
me their mood has stabilized with treatment, and they can once again do what
they want to do. It’s gratifying to know I’ve helped make a difference in
their lives,” Ms. Kwarteng Nyarko says.

Collaboration, Teamwork

With a
collaborative, multidisciplinary team and robust set of services, just about
anyone seeking mental health care can find what they need at Connections
Wellness Group – Arlington.

“We not only have a great team that promotes
the well-being of each patient and helps ensure they get what they need, but
Connections Wellness Group is also a wonderful place to work. Our team is
supportive, and we share ideas,” says Ms. Kwarteng Nyarko. “I encourage
anyone concerned about their mental and emotional health to take the first
step and call us to schedule a consultation. Everyone deserves to live their
best life.”
