PSYCHOLOGY SERVICES DEPARTMENT

The Psychology Services Department provides comprehensive psychological services such as evaluations, psycho-educational groups and individual psychotherapy. Crisis intervention and counseling is available on a 24 hour emergency basis. The department’s primary focus is to promote and provide a positive learning atmosphere conducive to pro-social patterns of behavior and thinking. A variety of programs are offered. Information, questions, concerns, and enrollment in programs can be addressed to the Psychology Services Department by submitting an Inmate Request to Staff Member to Psychology Services.
An important responsibility of the Psychology Services Department is the prevention of suicide. All staff are trained to detect warning signs of suicide; however, other inmates frequently see these signs earlier than staff. If you become aware of a situation that suggests an inmate is thinking about hurting himself, you are encouraged to notify staff so that appropriate prevention measures can be taken.
