Wednesday PM headlines: Free counseling at Westminster, new Aggie Ice Cream location
Free mental health counseling at Westminster's new Community Clinic
Located on-campus in Salt Lake City, the clinic aims to address a shortage of mental health providers in Utah, which makes it difficult for especially underserved and marginalized populations to get treatment, according to Clinical Director Anna Lieber.
Clinic counselors will be graduate students in the university’s Master of Science in Clinic Mental Health Counseling Program, working under the supervision of licensed mental health providers.

Utahns can participate in 27 different events, including boreal toad and least chub habitat restoration at Grouse Creek in Box Elder County and trail maintenance at Tibble Fork Reservoir.
Entry fees will also be waived at national parks and other federal public lands like national monuments, wildlife refuges and historical sites.
