Become a Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluator


NBFE was initially established in 2003 to enhance skills of licensed mental health professionals and forensic counselors, otherwise not effectively trained, or recognized by the public or private sector, as well as by the legal or mental health field. Eligible candidates will be professionally recognized and nationally credentialed with NBFE certification. In 2009 NBFE became a not-for-profit charitable corporation.


More About NBFE

What does NBFE do?

The National Board of Forensic Evaluators has two primary missions. The first one being to promote and serve the continuing education needs of mental health professionals. This is accomplished by educational seminars, workshops, publications via a highly specialized team of trained forensic mental health professionals.

NBFE trains and certifies eligible licensed professional counselors to be certified forensic mental health evaluators by a rigorous process involving training, mentoring and a written and oral examination protocol.

The second is to serve families by providing specialized assessments, educational materials and treatment plans. This is accomplished through a professional team approach used to assess and diagnose attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, autism, disruptive behaviors, oppositional defiant disorders and various other problematic child behavioral issues.
