Today@Sam: New Mental Health Center to Serve Community

The Psychological Services Center, which will provide the community with mental health services, opened in Huntsville on Tuesday. According to clinic director Mary Alice Conroy, it will cater to the public, the courts, attorneys and the criminal justice system. Although the new building is located on the campus of Sam Houston State University, the school has its own counseling center for students. The Psychological Services Center will be aimed at others in the community. The business had been in the planning stages since 1997, when the university gained approval from the State Higher Education Coordinating Board for a doctoral program in Forensic Clinical Psychology.
