The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Springfield College offers full courses in psychopharmacology; assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning; and crisis intervention. 

Our students graduate grounded in the theoretical bases of behavior—from the biological and psychological to cognitive and social perspectives—which positions students to pursue and fully achieve their professional career goals. 


Springfield College has excellent partnerships with outpatient psychiatric agencies, hospital-based inpatient psychiatric units, crisis intervention facilities, and local hospital emergency departments, among others that support you as you gain valuable experiences in the field. We’ll help find the right setting for you to grow personally and professionally as a clinician.
