The Culture & Mental Health Lab is currently comprised of graduate students in the combined Clinical, Counseling, School Psychology doctoral program at Utah State University and undergraduate students in the Psychology Department. Lab members are engaged in independent research in an interdependent context. Project content is in parenting, cultural values, microaggressions, and evidence-based interventions. Students are expected to be productive as a result of independent motivation and commitment, engaged mentoring, and proactive collaboration and support from a talented peer group as well as from family and loved ones.

In the Fall of 2014 on of our undergraduate lab members, Antonia Keller, spearheaded an effort to establish a community clinic to support local refugees and immigrants. She actively collaborated with the Cache Refugee and Immigrant Connection to identify important community needs, namely, employment assistance for refugees and citizenship support for both refugees and immigrants.

Over the course of the semester she organized and supported nine sessions of 2-hours each. In these sessions 29 individual visitors were served a total of 61 times. Many visitors returned to work with volunteers until they met their goals.

Volunteers were students in Psy4240 (Multicultural Psychology). These services are unique to our Valley.

  • The Citizenship Clinic is the only place where local refugees and immigrants can receive support filling out N400 forms free of charge. The option is pay costly fees to lawyers.
  • The Employment Clinic is the only place where local refugees and immigrants can receive hands on support preparing resumes, searching for jobs, and preparing and rehearsing for interviews free of charge. 

The Clinics will continue in collaboration with CRIC and colleagues from the USU Department of Social Work.  

Read some local coverage for clinic activities in the Logan newspaper, The Herald Journal and in the USU College of Education and Human Services blogpost.
