The Psychological Services Center (PSC) is a community mental health clinic operated by the Division of Clinical Psychology, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts, an APA accredited program since 1957.
The PSC engages in evidenced-based psychological practice, the highest standard of care in the field of mental health. Your treatment represents a partnership with your therapist that combines your unique characteristics and preferences, a thorough understanding of current clinical research, and the expertise of your therapist and his/her clinical supervisor. Our services are provided in a context of academic scholarship, psychotherapy research, and ongoing evaluations of the quality and effectiveness of your treatment.
The PSC is also a teaching clinic, and services are provided by graduate therapists-in-training, under the supervision of our senior staff of licensed clinical psychologists. One of our primary goals is the provision of low cost mental health services to individuals who have no health insurance or are “underinsured” by their current providers. Our clinic integrates the training of advanced doctoral students in clinical psychology, the provision of quality mental health care, and ongoing clinical research in a comfortable, professional atmosphere.
