|AMHCA Diplomate Credential|
The American Mental Health Counselors Association welcomes you as an applicant.
AMHCA is the first association to recognize both advanced practice and professional expertise in clinical mental health counseling. We believe in the current climate advanced practice clinical counselors with specialist skills are in increasing demand. Both the public and insurance providers are looking for counselors who have acquired cutting-edge training and clinical abilities.
The AMHCA Diplomate and Clinical Mental Health Specialist credential was developed three years ago by the AMHCA Board of Directors, who continue to oversee the selection process. We believe this credential will enhance the stature of individual clinical mental health counselors and in turn, will increase the prominence of our profession.
Fall 2016 Diplomate application cycle will begin October 3rd, 2016.
