UNCW clinic offers affordable mental health services to the community

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A new program at UNCW is offering mental health services to the Wilmington community without the need for insurance.

UNCW pyschology doctoral student clinicians will hold the $20 sessions under the supervision of licensed faculty in the Department of Psychology, according to UNCW.

These sessions are tailored for people who are over the age of 7 who could be struggling with depression, anxiety or stress. You can also use these services to have children tested for learning disabilities or for being gifted.

"There are people out there who haven’t sought help because of cost, lack of insurance or other factors,” UNCW psychology professor and clinic director Kate Nooner said in a UNCW report. “Anyone in the community can come to the UNCW clinic and there are none of those barriers.”

The GPAC clinic is located across South College Road from the main campus at 720 St. James Drive. For appointments, call 910.962.7525 or email gpac@uncw.edu.
