Licensed mental health counselors make a difference in the lives of others along with social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists. Careers include work in mental health programs, substance abuse treatment, veteran’s affairs, college counseling centers, youth support programs and private practice. School Counselors focus on academic support, social and emotional needs, and career readiness of students in kindergarten through grade 12.
The Council for Accreditation and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) accredits both the School and Clinical Mental Health Counseling Programs. CACREP accreditation offers greater recognition of quality professional preparation within the “job market”, as well as educational opportunities beyond a master’s degree, as well as provides students greater reciprocity for state/territory certifications and license beyond New York State.
