The Counseling Center is an integral component of the Framingham State University community, providing mental health services to matriculated undergraduate and graduate students. The Center’s clinical staff is composed of Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers (LICSW’s), a Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, and (most typically) final year MSW students in training. The Center offers individual, couple and group counseling, consultation to faculty, staff, and families, psychopharmacology management, and outreach programming to the larger college community.
The FSU Counseling Center is committed to providing high quality mental health care, and thus is highly invested in the clinical training program of graduate students who provide clinical services at FSU. Supervision is a highly valued and supported component of the training experience, as are weekly professional development trainings, case conferences, and other learning opportunities. The focus is on helping trainees to develop both professionally and personally in preparation for entering the mental health field.
