AUNE’s Psychological Services Center Helps Out Wellness House Residents
The Psychological Services Center (PSC) at Antioch University New England (AUNE) has begun providing therapy to residents of the Cleve Jones Wellness House in Gilsum, New Hampshire, a residential facility for people living with HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. The PSC will also start a therapy group at the Wellness House in December.
Susan McNeil, executive director of AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region, which runs the Cleve Jones Wellness House, said the partnership allows her organization to receive psychological services at a reduced rate, which makes it feasible. “Otherwise, it would not be possible for therapeutic intervention to occur,” MacNeil said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the faculty, staff, and students at the PSC and look forward to a lasting relationship on behalf of the men and women we serve.”
The Psychological Services Center is a counseling center serving AUNE students and the community. It is run by AUNE’s Department of Clinical Psychology.
