Sutherland Bipolar center

The Sutherland Centers provides diagnostic evaluations, treatment recommendations, psychotherapy (individual, family and group), a limited amount of on-going medication management, and an educational seminar series. Services are offered on a sliding-fee scale.

In addition to providing expert treatment and evaluation services to people who otherwise couldn't afford it, the center provides intensive training to advanced doctoral students in their clinical psychology program.
