Jacob Wilson, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
I am a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. I studied nursing at Grand Canyon University, and advanced practice nursing at Regis College. I am dedicated to helping people, and to helping people help themselves. In addition to the effective use of both medication and therapy, Jacob has become quite experienced in realizing the untapped potential of psychedelic medicines like ketamine. As the ketamine provider at Mentally STRONG (which is one of the leading Spravato [esketamine] clinics in the Colorado Springs area), I have witnessed ketamine’s treatment-enhancing effects, particularly in those with treatment-resistant depression.
Before I became a psychiatric nurse practitioner, I served in the US Army, both on active duty and in the reserves, where I currently still serve. As a result of my military service, I have experienced, and have seen first hand, the tragic consequences of untreated, neglected, or unrecognized symptoms of mental illness.
I also spent several years as a registered nurse working on multiple locked psychiatric units, which involved working with children, teens, and the underserved prison population. I have substantial outpatient and inpatient experience working with all age groups, but I have proven to be particularly effective in working with and relating to children, teens, and young adults. Throughout the course of my adult life, I have served in multiple ecclesiastical positions where he has provided support and counseling to individuals, couples, and families.
Although I was born in Georgia and grew up in Arizona, Colorado is where I call home. I am a family man, married almost 20 years, and have five children. My hobbies include hiking, running stairs, cycling (especially with my family), playing the piano (have played over 30 years), and loves singing around the piano with my family.
