Dr. Linder's Early Childhood Mental Health Clinic

CFD assistant professor, Dr. Lisa Linder, opened an Early Childhood Mental Health Clinic last fall. The center has helped meet the community’s need for mental health services for families and children from pre-natal to 8-years-old. The clinicians at the Early Childhood Mental Health Clinic are CFD practicum students in the final year of their master’s program in clinical counseling. Two full-time practicum students work about 20 hours per week in the center, while about 16 others see about 1-2 clients per week.
