A Campus of Good Neighbors

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'” -Mr. Rogers

Despite an abundance of bad news and negativity in the world right now, The Clinical Psychology Graduate Student Organization (CPGSO) believes USM is a campus of good neighbors.

CPGSO is a student-led organization of doctoral students who are dedicated to increasing access to mental healthcare in the Hattiesburg community. Members recognized that oftentimes clients of the USM Center for Behavioral Health have to skip therapy sessions or discontinue needed services because of financial hardships.

Seeking mental health services requires an abundance of courage, and it is heartbreaking for someone to find that courage but not receive treatment because of financial hurdles. Since July 2018, the CPGSO has helped fund 125 therapy sessions, and we want to continue offering that support for those who can benefit from it.

So, we're asking our neighbors to help. Those seeking services at our clinic are people in your community - maybe someone you know or maybe a stranger you pass by everyday. Whether you're living in a dorm on Golden Eagle Dr., in downtown Hattiesburg, or representing Southern Miss across the country, you are connected in our USM community web, and we need your help.

We offer services for children, adolescents, and adults of the Hattiesburg community and USM students, faculty, and staff. Our services include individual, child, family, couples and group therapy, comprehensive diagnostic evaluations/ assessments, consultation in various areas, including school and Head Start consultation, parent training, and select pre-employment screenings/evaluations.

Our goal is to raise $1,000. Individually, it may feel like we can't change the world or take on the financial responsibility of a neighbor, but together we can make that difference. Together, we can show the world why it's so special to be a Golden Eagle, and what it looks like when a community supports each other through the good times and the bad. Together, we are Southern Miss, a campus of good neighbors raising each other To The Top! Thank you!
