Welcome to Our New Blog

Many of our clients learn about us after searching the Internet for information about counseling and other psychological services available in the Hattiesburg area. Some find us after seeking information about a specific service we offer (e.g., Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder evaluations for adults, career counseling). Others find us by searching for help with symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, or other mental health concerns.

One of the most common things we hear from our clients is, "I wish I had known about you sooner." They were unaware that there was a university-based training clinic right here in Hattiesburg providing evidence-based counseling on a sliding scale.

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic is the service, training, and research center of the Counseling Psychology program in the Department of Psychology at The University of Southern Mississippi. Our services are provided by graduate students in counseling psychology under the close supervision of program faculty, all of whom are either licensed psychologists or currently pursuing licensure.

We are doing some remarkable things here at the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic, and we want to spread the word about what we have to offer the community. We are launching this blog to expand our presence on the Internet, making it easier for potential clients and referral sources to find us and giving us another way to connect with clients and community partners. 

We plan to use this blog as a means of sharing information about our services, announcements of upcoming events, relevant mental health news, and tips for promoting health and wellness.
