Mental Health Counseling Alumni Return to Marist

Employment Outcomes and Academic Preparation Discussed with Students

Several alumni from the MA in Mental Health Counseling graduate program recently returned to campus to speak with students in Dr. James Regan's course, "Counseling the Seriously Mentally Ill". In addition to speaking about the demands of working in the field, alumni and students engaged in a lively Q & A session that covered all aspects of graduate school life, career opportunities, academic preparation and professional best-practices on the job. The key take-away: Marist alumni from the Mental Health Counseling program believed they were better prepared academically, clinically, and professionally for their first position post-graduation compared to other junior counselors they worked with who had attended other schools. Current job titles of those alumni who participated in the talk include:

Assistant Director
Crisis Counselor and Prevention Counselor
Clinical Coordinator
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Clinic Supervisor
