The majority of clients who seek services at the PSC are community members from Huntsville or surrounding areas. Thus far, clinical services have been provided to adults, children, and families from a wide variety of backgrounds, including those individuals from varied ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students enrolled at the University are encouraged to contact the University Counseling Center, a separate facility on campus not associated with the PSC, as this service is typically covered by student fees.
Currently, the PSC provides services for several community organizations such as Montgomery County Youth Services, Montgomery County Department of Community Supervision and Corrections, Walker County Juvenile Services, Walker County Corrections and Community Supervision Department, Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, and Children's Protective Services. These services have included both therapy and assessments tailored to the needs of the organizations. New agencies interested in obtaining services through the PSC are encouraged to contact the Clinic Director for more information.
The PSC provides forensic evaluations for both attorneys and courts in ten counties. Evaluations are conducted both at the PSC or at a correctional facility.
To obtain services from the PSC , individuals are encouraged to call (936) 294-1210 to complete a telephone intake with a student clinic coordinator. The telephone intake is free of charge and typically takes approximately 15 minutes. During this time, the clinic coordinators will ask about your reasons for seeking psychological services and decide on an appropriate recommendation for treatment. Although parents may call to seek service for their children, individuals over the age of 17 must contact the PSC on their own.
The PSC strives to help all clients in a timely manner, but sometimes is faced with a waiting list that may range from one week to eight weeks. If you are unable to wait the length of the waiting list, please ask the staff for an appropriate referral.
