Community Voices Clinic

The Community Voices Clinic (CVC) is a school-based mental health clinic operating within the family centers at Donegan Elementary and Broughal Middle schools.

The CVC was formed in 2012 through a partnership between the Bethlehem Area School District, St. Luke’s Health Network, and Lehigh University's Counseling Psychology program.

The CVC’s mission is to provide free, culturally informed therapy services to children, adults, and families residing in South Bethlehem who would otherwise be unable to access services due to being uninsured, underinsured, or under financial strain.

The CVC is also a training site for graduate students from Lehigh’s College of Education; it is fully staffed by graduate students in Counseling Psychology from Lehigh University, including doctoral students serving as clinical supervisors and master’s students serving as trainees. The CVC is overseen by Dr. Arpana Inman, a licensed psychologist and Counseling Psychology faculty member.  The CVC embraces core tenets of Counseling Psychology including evidence-based practice, multicultural competence, and social justice in all of its activities.
