Psychology with a Minor in Mental Health Services

Are you passionate about helping others? Are you that friend that everyone goes to when they need help or advice? Are you hoping to pursue an exciting and dynamic career in the world of mental health?

We are experiencing a mental health practitioner shortage, making the need for passionate, authentic, and holistic counselors greater than ever. If this sounds like something you are interested in, Holy Family’s Mental Health Services minor may be a great fit for you!

The Mental Health Services minor provides an opportunity for the multidisciplinary study of mental health across the lifespan. The minor helps to prepare students from any major to work in mental health-related fields, by providing both academic knowledge and practical skills relevant

to helping professions, including human services, counseling, health care, and academic settings. Students may tailor the minor to their specific interests and educational goals.

What do students have to say?

“Minoring in MHS has overall Impacted the way I think, feel and act as a person. It has changed my views on myself and the world around me. Engaging in the classes has helped determine how I now handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices whether in my personal life

or career path. Mental health is now an important part at every stage in my life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.” - Aminatu Kanneh - class of 2024
