CIIS' Community Mental Health program was the first of its kind and developed in partnership
with public and non-profit mental health agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area. The program is
one of five programs offered through the Counseling Psychology department at CIIS. Its
dynamic coursework integrates the fundamentals of psychotherapy with cultural humility and
an understanding of the impact of trauma and social systems on individuals, couples, families,
and communities. The program's flexible weekend format allows working individuals to
maximize educational outcomes and maintain a healthy work/life balance. Graduates are
prepared to practice counseling in hospitals, clinics, schools, government agencies, community
non-profits, and more. Through ongoing work in community settings, CIIS faculty help to ensure
that the program design continues to meet the needs of community agencies. The hands-on
work also helps strengthen the ties the University has to organizations that are potential
employers of our graduates.
