AMHCA Diplomate Committee
Share |

The AMHCA Diplomate and Clinical Mental Health Specialist credential was developed over the course of two years and was approved by the AMHCA Board of Directors. This credential will not only enhance the stature of individual clinical mental health counselors but also will increase the prominence of our profession. AMHCA is the first association to recognize both advanced practice and professional clinical expertise in clinical mental health counseling. Increasingly, both the public and insurance providers are looking for qualified clinical mental health counselors who have acquired cutting-edge training and clinical abilities. Advanced practice clinical counselors with specialist skills are in increasing demand.

The Diplomate Program Committee updates the credentialing process and assists AMHCA staff in the management of the application process
