CLINICAL PRACTICE AT THE
METROPOLITAN CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH (MCMH)
Candidates see clinic patients at MCMH, a separate entity with which MITPP is associated. All decisions on treatment, patient assignments, or use of space at MCMH are in the sole discretion of MCMH’s Director of Clinical Services or his or her designee. Further information is contained in the Policies and Procedures Manual of MCMH.
The range of patients’ problems at MCMH may include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, borderline conditions, pathological narcissism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, and character pathology.
