The objective of this study was to address the gap in literature regarding how clinical diagnosis affects client mental health prognosis—specifically for clients seen in a graduate student training clinic. Archival data of the diagnoses, treatment outcomes, and demographics of 75 former clients of a Northwest psychology training clinic were used. A significant main effect was found for diagnostic category, where clients with mood disorders had significantly better treatment outcomes than clients with anxiety disorders. The presence of co-morbid disorders did not have a significant effect on treatment outcomes.
