The Vermont Mental Health Counselors Association is the professional association for Vermont Clinical Mental Health Counselors. Our purpose is to provide support, advocacy, and education for mental health professionals statewide. We are also committed to community education about issues related to mental health treatment, prevention, and general public awareness of the role of the mental health counselor. Since 1986, VTMHCA has been vital in representing the concerns of our profession to lawmakers, regulators, insurance companies, and government officials.
VTMHCA partners with the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA). Through this partnership, VTMCHA maintains a link to national and federal issues.
We are devoted to providing affordable, high-quality continuing education courses to professionals in the field of mental health. Twice a year VTMHCA sponsors continuing education workshops focused on clinical practice.
We have a number of committees: Membership committee, Legislative Committee, Ethics Committee, and Events Committee.
