Description

For more than a decade, JMU's graduate psychology faculty and students have been providing counseling services in Page County in consultation with local physicians. Tim Schulte, a licensed clinical psychologist and coordinator of Counseling and Psychological Services at JMU, began bringing his advanced graduate psychology students to Page in 2004 in response to a community health needs assessment as well as some changes in the local mental health services landscape. This initiative is growing, thanks to a steady building of relationships with primary-care physicians, Valley Health-Page Memorial Hospital and community leaders. JMU faculty and students now offer mental health services two days a week at The Health Place, a community health center in Stanley, and at Page Healthcare Associates, a Valley Health physician practice in Luray.
