Loyola University New Orleans has opened a low-cost mental health clinic hosted by the university’s Department of Counseling.

According to the announcement, the Loyola Center for Counseling and Education, or LCEE, is, “a new sliding-scale counseling clinic offering mental healthcare to underserved members of the New Orleans community.”

According to the 2018 Mental Health America report, Louisiana ranked 45th in the nation in regards to mental health care access.  The clinic hopes to address to fill the gap in the local community by providing affordable access to services. According to Clinical Director Dr. John Dewell, LPC-S, no patient will be turned away due to a lack of an ability to pay.

LCCE is currently open and serving patients Monday-Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you would like to book an appointment, you can first receive a free, confidential consultation by calling (504) 867-7858, or by emailing LCCE@loyno.edu.
