The Springfield College clinical mental health counseling graduate concentration provides students with a solid foundation of counseling theory and skills. With a strong focus on practice, students are offered opportunities for internships and practicums, along with classes taught by clinically experienced faculty, to prepare them to become licensed mental health counselors. 
What’s really unique about our concentration is that we offer full courses in psychopharmacology; assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning; and crisis intervention. Our students are well grounded in the theoretical bases of behavior—from the biological and psychological to cognitive and social perspectives. This positions students to pursue and fully achieve their professional career goals.

The faculty of the mental health counseling program want students who possess a passion for learning, a capacity for self-inquiry, an ability to relate to others effectively, and a desire to make a difference.
