Illness, job loss, school closings, and isolation are common themes in people's lives right now due to the stay-at-home order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Fortunately, the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services at Western Michigan University in Grand Rapids is providing affordable services to help people cope with mental stress during this time.

Jim Rossi, A Doctoral Limited License Psychologist at the facility, talks about the services they provide, and how patients are helping Western college students get their degree at the same time.

Master's and doctoral degree graduate students provide professional counseling and psychological services at CCPS. They are supervised by WMU faculty members who are professional counselors or psychologists, so they can provide professional care to the community while also earning experience to get their degrees.

CCPS provides personal therapy sessions, as well as marital/family therapy, group counseling, and psychological assessment.

Sessions cost $5-$35, with the potential of a fee waiver depending on the patient's circumstances. No insurance or referral is required to book an appointment.

CCPS Grand Rapids is now accepting appointments, with services set to begin the first week of May.
