The quarterly Journal of Mental Health Counseling (JMHC) provides clinical mental health counselors and researchers with practical knowledge and illuminating background from in-depth research on clinical studies and counseling practice. View JMHC Author Guidelines.

Published since 1978, JMHC articles address all aspects of practice, theory, professionalism, and research related to clinical mental health counseling. JMHC is divided into four sections:

MHCs work in a variety of clinical settings with diverse client populations. This section emphasizes cutting-edge strategies and techniques as well as innovative applications of established clinical practices. Articles provide critical analyses of the existing literature and descriptive application of clinical approaches, strategies, and techniques.

Explication of theoretical constructs and their application in clinical mental health practice are the emphasis of this section. Theoretical articles must be well grounded in the existing conceptual and empirical literature, delineate implications for practice, and provide illustrative applications (e.g., case studies). 

Professional Exchange
This section allows for dialogue among MHCs regarding dilemmas, challenges, divergent perspectives, and other emergent topics relevant to clinical mental health counseling.

This section addresses empirically supported best practices, evidenced-based approaches, and new developments in clinical mental health counseling. Articles include implications for professional mental health counseling practice and future research.
