The SFSU Psychology Clinic Has Openings!
Do you, or someone you know need some support during these tough times? The San Francisco State University Psychology Clinic is offering low-cost tele-health therapy services to SFSU students and members of the community. You don’t have to be a student to attend the clinic, and sessions start as low as $15, though no one is turned away based on cost. Often people feel that if they’re not struggling with something like serious clinical depression, that therapy is not necessary, but we’re all facing several stressful situations right now -- and the well-trained interns and clinicians at SFSU's Psychology Clinic can help! Call or email for an intake appointment: 415-338-2856, email@example.com

A Message from our Psychology Department Study Abroad Program
Though we all continue to shelter-in-place due to COVID-19, that has not stopped the learning process of our Gators. Our Study Abroad program would like to share the fruits of their labor with you: a Youtube channel featuring tips for self-care, social-emotional resources for young children, and shout-outs to all our essential workers from students like you!
We are starting you all off with their introductory video, but feel free to explore and share their channel with friends and family.
