Mississippi Anxiety Clinic and Camp for Kids (MACCK)

Mississippi Anxiety Clinic and Camp for Kids (MACCK) is a grant funded program focused on treating children with anxiety disorders such as selective mutism and social anxiety, with or without co-morbid developmental delays. The grant fills in gaps of mental health care for children in Mississippi through treatment, the first to bring PCIT-SM to Mississippi, and workforce development and therapists training in Parent Child Interaction Therapy for Selective Mutism (PCIT-SM) through partnership with the Selective Mutism Association. MACCK serves children ages 2 to 17 at CAY in individual, group and intensive format treatment. The program is launching the first intensive group treatment in the spring of 2021. Referrals for clinical services to treat selective or other socially impairing anxiety can be made to the CAY Clinic.
