Department of Clinical Psychology

HOD's Message:

The lack of opportunities and awareness regarding mental health is a significant barrier in seeking professional help in developing countries, specifically in Pakistan. Considering an individual's emotional and psychological needs and the challenges an individual experience in reaching out to a mental health professional can be managed with Clinical Psychology training and service availability on campus. For filling this gap, the Department of Clinical Psychology is inculcating essential awareness and working towards eradicating the stigma around mental health.  The Clinical Psychology Department is playing a significant role by providing professional clinical psychology services and to enhance the NUMS's reputation and credibility by providing good ethical and professional practices.

You are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities available within the department, such as internships, research projects, and clinical practicum experiences. These opportunities will give you hands-on experience working with patients, conducting research, and contributing to the field.
