New York Mental Health Counselors Association

                     Continuing Education Program

NYMHCA's  continuing education program was developed to provide you with the continuing education programs that you need to fulfill your LMHC license renewal process every 3 years. 

NYMHCA will offer only live, in-person programs such as workshops given during our regional chapter meetings, webinars and workshops given during our biennial conventions. Attendees will fill out and hand in a survey and receive their completion certificates!
