Kay Dore Counseling Clinic Mission Statement

Kay Dore Counseling Clinic Mission Statement

The Kay Doré Counseling Clinic (KDCC), under the direction of the Department of Psychology at McNeese State University, and was created in 2001 through the generosity of the William Doré Foundation. The main goal for the establishment of the KDCC is to provide a site for programs focusing on learning through growth, training, and experience to students earning a Psychology Masters Degree from McNeese State University. The Psychology Department at McNeese State University aims to generate empirical, knowledgeable students with the eligibility for certification, workforce, and/or doctorate level programs.


The mission of the KDCC is to: provide affordable mental/ behavioral health services for South West Louisiana's adult and children population, conduct relevant psychological research, and provide educational workshops/ services for the community. Though KDCC's counseling program willingly treats those from all backgrounds and economic situations, its aim is to serve community members who fall under the following criteria: those at or below poverty level, uninsured, insured but without mental health coverage, single parents, and students (other than those attending McNeese State University).
