As Executive Director and CEO, I hope to bring special insights into the world of the Clinical Mental Health Counselor today, and the roles that CMHCs can play in this dynamic care delivery and financing environment due to health care reform and other policy initiatives. In my role here at AMHCA – and in my previous positions at NASMHPD and NAMI -- I have been dedicated to addressing the needs of clinical mental health counselors, improving the financing and delivery of mental health services at the national and state level, and addressing mental health issues across the lifespan.
Through the blog we hope to provide strategic guidance and address issues that are important to the professionals we serve. I hope to connect on a more informal level with our members and audience about AMHCA news; specific program, policy, and clinical topics relevant to CMHC’s; and issues facing the profession in their practices -- and in the marketplace.
