Emory Student Health and Counseling Services
Mark McLeod has worked at the Emory Student Counseling Center for more than twenty-five years and served as the director for eighteen. He obtained his PhD in clinical psychology from Emory in 1982. His professional interests include interpersonal therapy, consultation, and the impact of study-abroad experiences on self-esteem and self-efficacy. McLeod has been involved in the implementation of Emory’s Mental Health Task Force plan, which includes community-based efforts to identify and treat faculty, staff, and students who may be struggling with mental health problems. Many of these programs are aimed at reducing student suicides. McLeod is co-director, along with Nadine Kaslow, of Emory’s Garrett Lee Smith SAMHSA suicide-prevention grant.
