Straight Talk Clinic’s services aim to add personal clarity, improve levels of functioning, and benefit individuals, families, and ultimately the broader community. We have been meeting the mental health needs of low-income Orange County residents for nearly five decades, contributing to improvements in the overall mental health of our community. Generations of families have benefited from our mental health services, and we receive many referrals from past clients who were able to make positive changes in their lives as a result of our programs.
Straight Talk Clinic has built a reputation as one of the premier training facilities for students in master’s and doctoral-level programs leading to licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist by the Board of Behavioral Sciences or Psychologist by the Board of Psychology. For over 40 years, we have trained and prepared mental health professionals for impactful careers throughout Orange County.
Supervised by licensed Psychologists and Marriage and Family Therapists, our clinical training program allows students to experience treating a range of mental health issues through the broad spectrum of people we serve. We have ongoing partnerships with the following academic institutions, which frequently refer their students to us: California State University, Fullerton; Pepperdine University; Chapman University; Vanguard University; Alliant International University; The Chicago School of Professional Psychology; and Azusa Pacific University, among others.
