Motlow Students tour Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute

April 30, 2015

Students in Dr. Stephen Guerin's Honors Abnormal Psychology class recently traveled to Nashville for a guided tour of the Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute (MTMHI), a maximum security psychiatric hospital. "The students learned about the interface between the criminal justice and mental health care systems, the types of diagnoses patients typically receive at MTMHI, the types of mental health care professionals who practice at the hospital and the types of evaluations and treatments (both psychological and biomedical) offered to patients," said Guerin, associate professor of psychology at Motlow.
