Make a Difference
Despite having among the highest rates of mental health challenges in the nation, Nevada suffers from a critical lack of available services. The PRACTICE, a UNLV community mental health training clinic, addresses this urgent issue, providing exemplary training in best practice care so that clinical and school psychology, and mental health counseling graduate students can direct their skills to help those in need.
Since opening in 2012, we have provided 15,000 hours of service and trained more than 140 next-generation professionals. Among the services provided are psychological assessment, telemental health, and individual psychotherapy.
We also boast a dynamic group psychotherapy program, which is a model of training for specialty certification. The PRACTICE’s interdisciplinary training model is the only one of its kind in Nevada and has been responsive to community needs, serving rural communities as well as the urban center of Las Vegas, including in the days following 1 October.
