The National Professional Association of Clinical
Mental Health Counselors
American Mental Health Counselors
Association Founded in 1976 when term Mental
Health Counselor was coined
Initial Definition of Scope of CMHC Practice
  • The 1979s initial AMHCAs Journal of Mental
    Health Counseling included first published
    definition of mental health counseling as
  • an interdisciplinary, multifaceted, holistic
    process of
  • Promotion of healthy lifestyles
  • Identification of individual stressors personal
    levels of functioning
  • Preservation or restoration of mental health
    (Seiler Messina, 1979)

AMHCAs Revised Scope of Practice in 1986
  • The 1986 AMHCA Board of Directors adopted
  • Clinical mental health counseling is the
    provision of professional counseling services
    involving the application of principles of
  • Psychotherapy
  • Human Development
  • Learning Theory
  • Group Dynamics
  • Etiology of mental illness dysfunctional
  • to individuals, couples, families and groups, for
    the purpose of promoting optimal mental health,
    dealing with normal problems of living and
    treating psychopathology

  • The practice of clinical mental health counseling
    includes, but is not limited to
  • Diagnosis treatment of mental emotional

    psychotherapeutic treatment modalities.

Regional Chapters of State MHCAs
State Chapters of AMHCA
AMHCA Belongs to
American Counseling Association Was known as
APGA-American Personnel and Guidance Association
in1976 and in 1983 as AACD American Association
of Counseling and Development until 1992 when it
changed to ACA
CODES OF ETHICS GoverningClinical Mental Health
National Certification
NBCCs National Certifications for Mental Health
  • NCC National Certified Counselor Over 48,000
  • CCMHC Founded 1979- Certified Clinical Mental
    Health Counselor Today only 1,000 are CCMHCs
    which needs to change if we are to put Health
    back into the professional identity of Clinical
    Mental Health Counseling

State Licensure for Counselors and Related Fields
  • In USA
  • 120,429 Licensed Professional Counselors
  • 54,785 Licensed Marriage Family Therapists
  • 202,924 Licensed Social Workers
  • All 50 States have Licensed Professional
    Counselors but only 15 have Mental Health
    Counseling in their Title (Major way of taking
    Health out of Clinical Mental Health Counseling!)

15 States with MHCs in Title
  • Delaware-License Professional Counselor of Mental
    Health (LPCMH)
  • Florida-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
    First Licensed 1981
  • Hawaii-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
  • Indiana-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
  • Iowa-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
  • Massachusetts-Licensed Mental Health Counselor
  • Nebraska-Licensed Independent Mental Health
    Practitioner (LMHP)

    Health Service Provider (LPC/MHSP)
  • Utah-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors
    (LCMHC) as of 2012
  • Vermont-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
  • Washington-Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Major Recommendation to Promote Professional
Identity of CMHCs
  • Given only 15 out 50 states licensed CMHCs, it
    is imperative that we who have LMHC licensure
    encourage the LPCs in the other 35 states to
    gain Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor
    (CCMHC) status through the NBCC which would be a
    clear way of putting HEALTH into Clinical Mental
    Health Counseling and a way to get counselors in
    all 50 states enabled to call themselves Clinical
    Mental Health Counselor

The Growth of Mental Health Counseling as a
  • In 2008, according to US Department of Labor
    120,000 Mental Health Counselors were employed
    only 6.7 of them were self-employed

    total of 163,000), representing a 36.3 growth
  •  Median annual wages in 2008 for Mental Health
    Counselors was 38,150. This is High when
    compared to other jobs.

Parity with the Other Mental Health Professions

  • Clinical Mental Health Counselors is 63
  • Psychologists is 75 for psychologists
  • Clinical Social Workers Marriage and Family
    Therapists is 60

    empowers diverse individuals, families and groups
    to accomplish mental health, wellness, education
    and career goals
  • They also established
  • The counseling profession shall establish uniform
    licensing standards with LPC as an entry-level
    title for counselor licensure.

  • The emerging health needs of Americans is
    changing and as a result the roles and function
    of mental health practitioners will be changing
    as well

New AMHCA Clinical Standards Help CMHC to Get
Ready for Changes in System
  • The Affordable Care behavioral medicine
  • 1. ACA calls for the coordination and integration
    of medical services through the primary care
    provider for a whole person orientation to
    medical treatment - model currently implemented
    at some level in VA Federally Qualified Health
    Centers (FQHCs)
  • 2. The ACA calls for creation of Affordable Care
    Organizations (ACOs) to provide comprehensive
    services to Medicare recipients with a strong
    primary care basis
  • 3. The ACA model includes integration of mental
    behavioral health services into the
    Patient-centered medical home (PCMH) which can
    enhance patient outcomes
  • 4. The ACA model integrates mental, behavioral
    and medical services under one roof with
    potential of controlling the costs for patients
  • 5. The ACA integrated behavioral medical
    approach opens a massive opportunity for clinical
    mental health counselors
  • 6. To be prepared to fill this evolving
    behavioral medicine role, it is imperative that
    clinical mental health counseling training
    programs establish training for future
    practitioners in these integrated medical

The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
  • Beginning 2014 ACA increases access to quality
    health care including coverage for mental health
    substance use disorder services
  • All new small group individual private market
    plans will be required to cover mental health
    substance use disorder services as part of the
    health care law's Essential Health Benefits

The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
  • Behavioral health benefits will be covered at
    parity with medical surgical benefits
  • Insurers will no longer be able to deny anyone
    coverage because of a pre-existing behavioral
    health condition
  • ACA already ensures that new health plans cover
    recommended preventive benefits without cost
    sharing, including depression screening for
    adults adolescents as well as behavioral
    assessments for children

Results of the Affordable Care Act
  • Primary care providers receive 10 Medicare bonus
    payment for primary care services
  • A new Medicaid state option is created to permit
    certain Medicaid enrollees to designate a
    provider as a health home states taking up the
    option receive 90 federal matching payments for
    two years for health home-related services.
  • Small employers receive grants for up to five
    years to establish wellness programs

Results of the ACA continued
  • The Center for Medicare Medicaid Innovation
    launches the Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
    Model Advance Payment ACO Model, which offers
    shared savings other payment incentives for
    selected organizations that provide efficient, coo
    rdinated, patient-centered care
  • Some States established American Health Benefit
    Exchanges Small Business Health Options Program
    Exchanges to facilitate purchase of insurance by
    individuals small employers
  • Teaching Health Centers are established
    to provide payments for primary care residency
    programs in community-based ambulatory patient
    care centers

Two Healthcare Organizational Models which are
Driving Change
  • Two New Medicare/Medicaid models are driving a
    change in healthcare delivery
  • Patient Centered Medical Homes
  • Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)

Medical Homes
  1. Patient Centered - Empowers them with Information
    and Understanding
  2. Comprehensive - Co-location of care providers in
    physical and behavioral health
  3. Coordinated Care - Through Health Information
    Technology all providers are kept in touch
  4. Accessible same day appointment 24/7
    availability through technology online
  5. Committed to Quality Safety Quality
    Improvement Goals which are tracked

Benefits of Medical Homes
  1. Patients seek out the right care which is
    needed-which is often behavioral vs. physical
  2. Less use of ERs or delays in seeking care
  3. Less duplication of tests, labs procedures
  4. Better control of chronic diseases other
    illnesses improving health outcomes
  5. Focus on wellness prevention reduce incidence
    severity of chronic disease or illnesses
  6. Cost savings less use of ERs Hospitals

What is moving the Patient Centered Home Health
  • In April 2013 the Patient-Centered Primary Care
    Collaborative Pointed out on it website these
    factors driving the Home Health Model
  • Unsustainable cost increases in health care
  • Growing availability of data
  • Vast change in the way we communicate
  • Example In Denmark, more than 80 percent of
    health-care encounters transactions are
    electronically based vastly different method of
    communicating is coming online and it's coming
    fast, driven by younger generations of patients
    and physicians.

Potential Role of Mental Health Counselors in
Medical Homes
  • Address the stressors which lead folks to seek
    out medical attention in the first place
  • Assist in increasing compliance of patients with
    the medical directives given them by primary care
  • Wellness educational programming to help ward off
    chronic or severe illnesses
  • Assisting clients to cope with the medical
    conditions for which they are receiving medical

Accountable Care Organizations
  • Have a look at the CMS video which overviews the
    ACO model
  • http//innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/aco/
  • Now lets look at the announcement of the Role
    Out of the ACO rules in 2011 to see what is hoped
    for in this model
  • http//www.healthcare.gov/news/factsheets/2011/03/

Goal of ACOs
  • The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that
    patients, especially the chronically ill, get the
    right care at the right time, while avoiding
    unnecessary duplication of services and
    preventing medical errors.

So what are ACOs
  1. ACO assumes financial risk rather than 3rd party
    payers (government, business or insurance
    companies) for group of patients assigned to it
  2. Consists of more than one hospital number of
    primary care clinics with full array of medical
    health specialists-who self-refer to their own
  3. Control costs by being responsible for full care
    of patients
  4. Integration of mental behavioral health
    services into Patient-centered medical homes
  5. Enhance patient outcomes through emphasis on
    prevention, compliance, and immediate 24/7
  6. Utilize an integrated behavioral medical approach

How will ACOs Work?
  • The Affordable Care Organizations (ACOs) is a
    large local health system
  • It usually includes more than one hospital and a
    number of primary care clinics.
  • It is this whole system which is in charge of the
    care of its patients
  • The providers refer to other specialists inside
    of their own system
  • These ACOs have their own group of providers
    (which could include Clinical Mental Health
    Counselors) by referring within the system
    controls costs
  • ACOs are then responsible not only for their
    costs but also for the quality of their services
    to their patients
  • Providers are paid a flat fee that is risk
    adjusted for the severity of the issues facing
    the patients
  • The ACO organization assumes the financial risk
    rather than the government, business or insurance
  • Where Clinical Mental Health Counselors work and
    how they will be paid may change greatly in the
    future as these ACOs become reality after full
    implementation of the ACA in 2014

Utahs Efforts under ACA
  • Utah is one of 16 states which proposes to design
    an innovative statewide initiative to facilitate
    improved physician/patient communication care
  • Goal of improving health care quality lowering
  • The state will convene a multi-stakeholder group
    that will address strategies for healthcare
    transformation in five key areas
  • Expanded health information technology
  • Adequate healthcare workforce
  • Wellness healthy lifestyle promotion
  • Payment reform
  • Medical malpractice dispute resolution.

Prevention Services Mandated by ACA
  • After September 23, 2010, the following
    preventive services must be covered without
    policy holder having to pay copayment or
    co-insurance or meet deductible but only applies
    when these services are delivered by a network
  • Alcohol Misuse screening counseling
  • Alcohol and Drug Use assessment for adolescents
  • Behavioral Assessment for children of all ages
  • Depression screening for adults adolescents
  • Developmental screening for children under age 3
    surveillance throughout childhood
  • Diet counseling for adults at higher risk for
    chronic disease
  • Obesity Screening counseling for adults
  • Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) prevention
    counseling for adults adolescents at higher
    risk who are sexually active

    adults cessation interventions for tobacco
    users expanded counseling for pregnant tobacco
  • Domestic interpersonal violence screening
    counseling for all women
  • Well-woman visits to obtain recommended
    preventive services for women under 65

Potential Clinical Setting Openings for CMHCs
with ACA Implementation
  • Clinical Mental Health Counselors will be ideally
    situated to provide Behavioral Medical
    Interventions based on their expanded training
    and implementation of AMHCAs Clinical Standards.
    They will then need to promote themselves in the
    following settings
  • General Practice Family Practice Internal
    Medicine Clinics
  • Rehabilitation In-patient and out-patient Centers
  • General and Specialized Hospitals
  • Senior Citizens Independent housing, Assisted
    Living Nursing Homes

What are the future prospects for the
  • Recognized for VA Positions in VA Hospitals and
    Field Agencies which is good given the OIF and
    OEF veterans complex health issues
  • AMHCA hopes to soon be recognized for Medicare
  • Increased work in Behavioral Medicine in
    Hospitals, Rehab Centers Primary Care
    Physicians Offices
  • Increased work in Substance Abuse Alcohol
    Treatment Facilities

Mental Health Needs of OEF OIF Vets
  • The invisible wounds which our OIF and OEF vets
    return with are staggering
  • PTSD and TBI along with Combat Depression are
    staggering disorders which are impacting from 1/3
    to 2/3s of these vets. The Mental Health system
    over the next 5 to 10 years will become
    overwhelmed in meeting their individual as well
    as marital and family needs.
  • CMHCs need to be ready to serve this population

Baby Boomer Generation are Aging
  • The increase in Boomers aging and their impact on
    the medical and mental health field cannot be
    ignored or underestimated
  • It is imperative that CMHCs be armed with
    Behavioral Medicine techniques to address the
    needs of this geriatric population to address
    their chronic health issues, disabilities and
    cognitive decline needs

What Skills Do Mental Health Counselors Need?
  • Ability to understand dynamics of Human
    Development to capture good psychosocial history
    of clients
  • Diagnosis of and treatment for behavioral

    Clinical Mental Health by reviewing
  • The implications of the new Affordable Care Act
    (ACA) and how available tools can help clinical
    mental health counselors prepare themselves to be
    better able to present themselves to the medical
    community as legitimate partners in the
    prevention and treatment of mental illness in the
    next century
  • The new 2011 AMHCA CMHC Clinical Standards and
    how they put Health into CMHC
  • The need for Counselors to become Behavioral
    Medicine Specialists armed with understanding of
    Neuroscience, Psychopharmacology, Evidenced Based
    Practices and the needs of people who have
    experienced severe trauma such as the Vets from
    OIF and OEF.
