In today's managed care environment, clinical mental health counselors are uniquely qualified to meet the challenges of providing high quality care in a cost-effective manner. Clinical mental health counselors practice in a variety of settings, including independent practice, community agencies, managed behavioral health care organizations, integrated delivery systems, hospitals, employee assistance programs, and substance abuse treatment centers.
Mental health counseling has been in practice for a considerable time in various forms, and has often been a function of religious or other community organizations intent on supporting the overall health and prosperity of citizens. As human understanding of psychology and the consciousness itself has evolved over time, mental health counseling has become a more precise field, populated by certified and licensed professionals who are able to help their clients recover from trauma and create meaningful change within their lives. Counseling is sometimes mandated for individuals, couples, and families who are facing legal or other problems, especially in cases involving substance abuse, physical violence, or other immediate concerns. In some instances, however, mental health counseling is simply recommended to those who express a personal emotional or behavioral issue or who feel they might benefit from the perspective and advice of someone specially trained to mediate and assist with mental health.
