This Post-master’s Certificate in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is open to those who already hold a master’s degree in counseling yet do not meet the current educational requirements for licensure as a clinical mental health counselor in their state. This certificate allows counselors with specializations in other areas (such as school or career counseling) to gain the additional specialized academic and field experiences currently required for clinical mental health counseling.
