The SUU Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic (CCAC) is dedicated to facilitating the education and training of psychologists as broadly trained scientist-practitioners through the provision of empirically supported psychological services to adults, children, and families in Iron County and surrounding areas. The CCAC provides time-limited, direct clinical services and consultation to community members in Cedar City and surrounding areas.

Assessment and therapy services in the CCAC are provided by doctoral level student clinicians, supervised by licensed faculty in the PsyD Clinical Psychology Program. This allows us to provide high quality services at a low cost to community members. Due to the training nature of the clinic, we do NOT provide court-ordered services, services for chronic and/or high-risk clients where a higher level of care is warranted, or primary substance use or eating disorders that require coordination with medical or other health care providers.

Services at the clinic are provided through one of four specialty clinics.

Frequently Asked Questions

The CCAC provides time-limited, direct clinical services and consultation to community members in Cedar City and surrounding areas. Services are also available to University faculty and staff. Behavioral and mental health needs of University students are primarily served through SUU's Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) center on campus, but University students may be eligible for services through the SPC when specific presenting concerns or circumstances cannot be addressed through CAPS.

Therapists are qualified doctoral-level students in SUU’s Clinical Psychology PsyD program supervised by licensed full-time or adjunct faculty in the Department of Psychology at SUU.

The CCAC is not a crisis center. As such, the clinic cannot provide 24-hr access to therapists. During open hours, clients can leave messages for their therapists with the front desk staff. The front desk workers will then notify clinicians. If it is an emergency, the front desk staff will follow emergency call procedures

Therapy services through the CCAC are not intended to be long-term. Treatments focus on specific treatment goals and student clinicians will assess progress and move towards termination as soon as guided by empirical literature. Most commonly, treatments range between 6-15 sessions.

Practicum students in clinical psychology are trainees. As such, they are at the CCAC to gain clinical experience, under the supervision of more experienced clinicians. This is a training clinic and all services provided to clients are digitally-recorded and supervised by senior clinicians. Senior clinicians provide supervision, guided feedback, and support to the Practicum students so that the client receives appropriate care.

All individuals seeking clinical services are asked to complete a brief online Request for Services (RFS) form. The CCAC will review requests and follow up within one week in September-May (or within 30 days in June/July/August).

The CCAC does not contract with any insurance companies. All costs are out of pocket. Session costs depend on a sliding scale fee which is based on current poverty guidelines. You will be asked to provide verification at the first session.

No. The CCAC offers psychological services, not medication services. The clinic can coordinate with other service providers to share relevant patient information.

If a clinician feels that their client might benefit from additional services (psychological or otherwise) not available at the CCAC, they will provide the client with information about other service options available.
