2020 Conference


Early Bird Registration for 2021 AMHCA Annual Conference is Open!



Registration for the 2020 AMHCA Annual Conference is now closed.

We at AMHCA have made the difficult decision to pivot from our planned in-person event in Las Vegas to a virtual event via Zoom.

Same great content, new location.

While we hate that we can’t be physically together for this year’s signature event, we will be together in some form.

We will still be energized, empowered and unified and ready to shape the future of the mental health profession.

There is no stopping us!

We hope you will join us in putting on a great virtual conference that can energize, empower, and unify our profession.

Join us online this summer for AMHCA's 2020 Annual Conference, June 24 - 26. 

At last year's conference in Virginia, we embraced our professional identity as clinical mental health counselors and committed to uphold the Clinical Mental Health Counselor Declaration. During this year's upcoming Annual Conference, we will continue to accentuate our Declaration:

• With a captivating ENERGY to advocate for the advancement of our profession.
Great motivational speakers and leaders have captivating energy; similarly, great clinical mental health counselors have communicable energy. The emotional tone we assert at meetings and conferences, and with our clients and colleagues, must energize and continue to strengthen the values, pride, and integrity of our profession.

• With the responsibility to EMPOWER each clinical mental health counselor to provide the highest standard of care.
The work we do matters! Take the reins of the clinical mental health counseling profession, and continue to build a community of professionals solid in our scope of practice.

• With a continued effort to UNIFY the values of the clinical mental health counselor.
As a profession, we are making profess with licensure portability. Let us continue to embrace the power of collaboration and connectedness within our profession. Each of us can be a change agent for the quality of life of our profession and for the next generation of clinical mental health counselors.

The American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) Annual Conference is the only national professional conference for licensed mental health counselors. AMHCA members, mental health counseling students, and other mental health professionals are invited to present their research and share their expertise at this conference. Take this opportunity to get involved and share your work with your colleagues.
