Minnesota may see psychologist shortage after Argosy closes

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Mental health leaders are worried that Minnesota could suffer a shortage of psychologists following the sudden closure of Argosy University.

The private university chain closed its Eagan campus last month after losing access to federal loan programs. The U.S. Department of Education said Argosy had improperly withheld millions of dollars in financial aid from students.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports that Argosy had carved out a niche in mental health care education, once estimated to have trained about a fifth of the licensed psychologists in the Twin Cities.

The Minnesota Psychological Association says the state will see a shortage of doctoral-level practitioners who can provide a full range of services, including assessments and therapy. It says that lack will affect private practices and some large health providers.
