The mental health and psychology minor is designed for students who are interested in the theory and application of mental health issues. Such students might be interested in working with chronically mentally ill, wellness efforts, chemical dependency (with dual diagnosis), in social work positions or in areas of social services in which a working knowledge of mental health is essential. The minor fits well with other majors including social work and human services.

The Mental Health and Psychology program is a part of the College of Health, Community and Professional Studies and is offered as a minor.
