Mental health providers often work in the field providing direct support to first responders in a crisis situation, so understanding the psychology of first responders and adapting to situational demands is important.

The Behavioral Education, Analysis and Research (BEAR) Center at NMU provides critical therapy services to children with autism and other behavioral disorders, both at the campus clinic and at practicum sites across the Upper Peninsula.
