The American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) is excited to announce that National Mental Health Counseling Week will be observed May 3 – 9, 2015 and will focus on Excellence in Practice. Each year AMHCA sponsors this week to shine light on the field of mental health counseling, what it is and how it helps the public.

What makes a great counselor?

How do you know that the tools you are using with your clients are effective? What is counseling and how can a counselor help me? Through a set group of standards and ethics for mental health counselors, AMHCA is dedicated to training and cultivating excellent practitioners. This year we want to break through walls of stigma and show how excellent mental health counselors change lives and improve mental health.

Learn about mental health. End stigma.
