About our 2023 Giving Day project
The Human Development Clinic is a low-cost, sliding-scale fee based mental health clinic staffed by MSU faculty and graduate students of the counseling training program. The clinic is housed within the Department of Health & Human Development. All MSU Giving Day donations will directly support operational costs of the counseling clinic, including stipends for the counseling students who provide services during their internship.
Our MSU Giving Day is to raise $28,000 in stipend support for the counseling interns who provide needed counseling services in the Gallatin Valley. The clinic's operational expenses are entirely dependent upon the sliding-scale fees collected.
This campaign has been generously supported with a $1,500 dollar-for-dollar match. The first $1,500 dollars will be doubled.
About our organization
The Human Development Clinic serves as a training clinic for graduate students in the counseling program who are supervised by licensed, university faculty. These students are completing their internship as a requirement of their counseling master's degree program. The Human Development Clinic is funded completely by donations and the sliding-scale fees for counseling services.
Why are donations necessary?
The Human Development Clinic provides over 2,000 hours of free to low-cost counseling services to the community. The operation of the clinic depends upon the students working as interns there. With increased costs of attending college and living expenses, interns will benefit from receiving a stipend to help offset educational expenses.
