Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Would you like a career as a counselor in a community agency or private setting?
The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program provides knowledge, practice, and skills through educational and clinical experiences to develop professional counselors as intentional practitioners and advocates for client growth and development.
The program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP); approved by the State of Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage and Family Therapist Board; and prepares graduates for licensure testing as Licensed Professional Counselors. After two years of work as a counselor, you may test for Professional Clinical Counseling Licensure to work independently in the counseling field.
