This program is designed for professionals who hold a Master’s degree in school counseling or a closely related field who want to pursue advanced training in a clinical setting. The program is designed to follow the standards of the New Hampshire Board of Mental Health Practice in order to fulfill eligibility requirements for state licensure as a licensed mental health counselor, LMHC. It is important to note that upon completion of the CAGS, students are not immediately granted licensure by the New Hampshire Board of Mental Health Practice. After graduation an additional post-Master’s supervised work experience is required to become a licensed mental health counselor. Students interested in the details of obtaining their mental health counseling license should contact the New Hampshire Board of Mental Health Practice for further information. Note: The post-Master’s internship supervisor must be a licensed mental health counselor.
