Counselor prioritizes mental health
For 43-year-old Lori Bailey, counseling is something she’s always wanted to do. No particular incident drew her to the field, she says, but seeing the hurt and pain in others motivated her to do what she could to help them.
“You have to want the better for everyone,” she said.
A native of Charleston, MS, Bailey headed to Delta State University to study psychology a little more than 20 years ago. While in her undergraduate program, she took a career assessment that indicated she would enjoy and do well working in a helping field.
Shortly after completing her undergraduate studies, she pursued and earned a Master in Education with specialization in Community Counseling at the same university through its counselor education program, which is approved by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Her graduate degree consisted of coursework and three practicums – one in the school’s lab, one mixed between the school’s lab and in the field, and a final in the field.
This training enabled her to successfully complete a professional state licensure, Licensed Certified Mental Health Therapist (LCMHT). The professional credential of LCMHT properly qualified Bailey for her current role as Therapist and County Coordinator at Region One Mental Health Center in Tunica.

Just after 10 a.m. Monday, the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call from an employee at the MBI Construction site, who reported a body hanging. Sheriff K.C. Hamp contacted the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Crime Scene Unit to assist at the scene.
The body, identified as Gregory Allen Smith, 44, was transported to the Medical Examiner’s office in Jackson, Miss. Smith was a resident of Plum Road at the Tunica Cut-off.
