Mental Health Counseling
The mission of the mental health counseling concentration program is to develop highly skilled counselors who are prepared to meet the mental health needs of their diverse communities in ways that promote social change and social justice. Counselors will develop self-awareness, empathic and empowering attitudes, and an understanding of a broad range of counseling principles and skills to bridge theory and effective practice.
The mental health counseling courses are designed to meet standards that prepare the student to apply for licensure in their state. This program does not automatically confer status as a licensed mental health counselor.
It is the responsibility of the student to keep current with all state requirements to become a licensed mental health counselor, including post-graduate supervised experience, and to pass the state licensing examination for your state.
