The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Clinic (CMHCC), located on the University of North Georgia campus, welcomes all members of the Lumpkin county and Dahlonega community for individual, relationship, child/adolescent, family and career counseling. The CMHCC encourages clients to use the available services regardless of age, ethnicity, cultural background, sexual orientation, marital status or family situation. Single-parent and blended families, “traditional” and “non-traditional” families, married couples, domestic partners and individuals of any background and life situation are welcome.
Clients will complete a phone intake prior to scheduling their first session. This intake consists of questions used to identify the appropriateness of the services provided by the CMHCC. This will also provide the counselor a basic overview of presenting concerns prior to the first meeting. If level of care provided by the CMHCC is not adequate to meet the needs of a client, appropriate referrals may be provided.
For persons who want assistance and skills in dealing with personal changes, emotional and social crises, and other personal issues such as divorce/separation, depression, anger, stress and addictions.
Counseling can be provided either with other family members or individually to help children/adolescents understand and deal with problems of their own or problems relating to family or school.
This is for any group who desires assistance in understanding roles, interactions, patterns of behavior, dealing with pressures and problems, school difficulties and with members who are making major life changes.
Persons who would like assistance in learning how to make decisions and needing information or guidance for educational or career choices can receive counseling and appropriate testing services and referrals.
Whether you are married, “coupled,” or domestic partners, this is for those seeking to strengthen and improve their relationships or to work on unsatisfactory relationship issues.
In the event of an emergency,
