free kids therapy

The pandemic has placed mental health strains on children and teens, and as a new school year begins, Mississippi State University’s Psychology Clinic is providing free mental health services for those who need it.

With more than $200,000 from the CARES Act, the MSU Psychology Clinic will be providing these free mental health services for youth through mental health screening, consultation, therapy.

This award was granted to Dr. Melanie Walsh who wrote the grant to help children who are still processing the changes during a pandemic.

“Even though we know that this funding came from the CARES Act, it doesn’t mean that the children and teens we’re working with have mental health issues that are directly related to coronavirus,” said Walsh.
