The Mary J. Wright Centre also provides a unique practice or training opportunity to students. We offer a practicum experience for Ph.D. students learning to become childhood mental health and well-being professionals. Students from the School and Applied Child Psychology program at Western University offer much needed psychological services to clients of Merrymount under the supervision of a registered Psychologist. These services can include consultation, assessment, and intervention.
In turn, Merrymount offers our students a real world experience of practicing their skills in a child and family centre and within a multidisciplinary setting. The rich learning environment of Merrymount also provides opportunity for students to build collaboration skills and appreciate how knowledge from the classroom can be translated to practice.
Our students inject new ideas and are passionate members of the team.
