2From Dream to Reality in 1976 On an impulsive whim Nancy and Jim:Coined term “Mental Health Counselor”Coined Association Title: The American Mental Health Counselor’s AssociationAs the process caught fireEstablished the Profession of Mental Health CounselingSet out to create its “Hallmarks of a Profession”
3What are the Hallmarks of a Profession? Professional Membership OrganizationCode of EthicsCertification and LicensureAccreditationResearch into Effectiveness of Service Delivery
4History Timeline of Creation of Mental Health Counseling Profession 1976 – Coining of term Mental Health Counselor and formation of American Mental Health Counselor’s Association as Division of ACA1979 – Creation of the National Academy of Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselors1981 – First State Law to license Mental Health Counselors put into effect in Florida1985 – AMHCA had over 12,000 members2011 – AMHCA put out its newest Standards of Practice in Mental Health Counseling-Helping to put Health back into Clinical Mental Health Counseling2013 – AMHCA has over 7,000 members
5The National Professional Association of Clinical Mental Health Counselors American Mental HealthCounselors AssociationFounded in 1976 when term Mental Health Counselor was coined
6Initial Definition of Scope of CMHC Practice The 1979’s initial AMHCA’s Journal of Mental Health Counseling included first published definition of mental health counseling as:“an interdisciplinary, multifaceted, holistic process of:Promotion of healthy lifestylesIdentification of individual stressors & personal levels of functioningPreservation or restoration of mental health” (Seiler & Messina, 1979)
7AMHCA’s 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:PsychotherapyHuman DevelopmentLearning TheoryGroup DynamicsEtiology of mental illness & dysfunctional behaviorto individuals, couples, families and groups, for the purpose of promoting optimal mental health, dealing with normal problems of living and treating psychopathology…

10AMHCA 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
11CODES OF ETHICS Governing Clinical Mental Health Counselors
13NBCC’s National Certifications for Mental Health Counselors NCC: National Certified Counselor – Over 48,000CCMHC: Founded Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor – Today only 1, are CCMHC’s which needs to change if we are to put Health back into the professional identity of Clinical Mental Health Counseling
14State Licensure for Counselors and Related Fields In USA120,429 Licensed Professional Counselors54, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists202,924 Licensed Social WorkersAll 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!)
1515 States with MHC’s in Title Delaware-License Professional Counselor of Mental Health (LPCMH)Florida-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) First Licensed 1981Hawaii-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Indiana-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Iowa-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Massachusetts-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Nebraska-Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LMHP)New Hampshire- Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC)New Mexico-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)New York-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Rhode Island-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC)South Dakota-Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health (LP-MH)Tennessee-Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider (LPC/MHSP)Utah-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors (LCMHC) as of 2012Vermont-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC)Washington-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
16Major Recommendation to Promote Professional Identity of CMHC’s Given only 15 out 50 states licensed CMHC’s, it is imperative that we who have LMHC licensure encourage the LPC’s 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
18Research in the field is Reported in AMHCA’s Journal
19Accreditation: Standards for Training of CMHC CACREP (The Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs) 1988 CACREP set out its first Standards for accreditation of CMHC Programs using 60 hour requirement put out in 1979 by AMHCA – But it also had Community Counseling Programs with up to 48 hours – Most went Community Counseling 2009 CACREP adopted standards for CMHC which included 60 hour requirement
202009 CACREP Standards for CMHC Required both core CACREP areas & specialized training in clinical mental healthCore CACREP areas include:Professional Orientation and Ethical PracticeSocial and Cultural DiversityHuman Growth and Development across the lifespanCareer DevelopmentHelping RelationshipsGroup WorkAssessmentResearch and Program Evaluation

Little change is being recommended for the next round of CACREP Standards & AMHCA’s 2011 Standards have had little impact on what is being proposed at the current time.Let’s see if this will matter based on future trends.
28The Growth of Mental Health Counseling as a Profession In 2008, according to US Department of Labor: 120,000 Mental Health Counselors were employed & only 6.7% of them were self-employedBy 2018 43,000 jobs will be added (for a for a 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.
29Parity with the Other Mental Health Professions The median reimbursable fee for service:Clinical Mental Health Counselors is $63Psychologists is $75 for psychologistsClinical Social Workers & Marriage and Family Therapists is $60(January 2006 study by Psychotherapy Finances)
30SO! What do Mental Health Counselors Currently Do? Mental Health Counselors offer full range of services:Assessment & diagnosisTreatment planning and utilization reviewPsychotherapyBrief and solution-focused therapyAlcoholism and substance abuse treatmentPsycho-educational & prevention programsCrisis managementTrauma Intervention
31ACA’s 20/20 Commission’s Definition of Counseling Counseling is a professional relationship that 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.
32BUT THINGS ARE GOING TO CHANGE! 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
33New AMHCA Clinical Standards Help CMHC to Get Ready for Changes in System The Affordable Care behavioral medicine interventions1. 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 (FQHC’s)2. The ACA calls for creation of Affordable Care Organizations (ACO’s) to provide comprehensive services to Medicare recipients with a strong primary care basis3. The ACA model includes integration of mental & behavioral health services into the Patient-centered medical home (PCMH) which can enhance patient outcomes4. The ACA model integrates mental, behavioral and medical services under one roof with potential of controlling the costs for patients5. The ACA integrated behavioral medical approach opens a massive opportunity for clinical mental health counselors6. 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 settings.
34The Affordable Care Act (ACA) Beginning 2014 ACA increases access to quality health care including coverage for mental health & substance use disorder servicesAll 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” categories
35The Affordable Care Act (ACA) Behavioral health benefits will be covered at parity with medical & surgical benefitsInsurers will no longer be able to deny anyone coverage because of a pre-existing behavioral health conditionACA 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
36Results of the Affordable Care Act Primary care providers receive 10% Medicare bonus payment for primary care servicesA 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
37Results 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, coordinated, patient-centered careSome States established American Health Benefit Exchanges & Small Business Health Options Program Exchanges to facilitate purchase of insurance by individuals & small employersTeaching Health Centers are established to provide payments for primary care residency programs in community-based ambulatory patient care centers
38Two Healthcare Organizational Models which are Driving Change Two New Medicare/Medicaid models are driving a change in healthcare delivery:Patient Centered Medical HomesAccountable Care Organizations (ACO’s)
39Medical HomesPatient Centered - Empowers them with Information and UnderstandingComprehensive - Co-location of care providers in physical and behavioral healthCoordinated Care - Through Health Information Technology all providers are kept in touchAccessible – same day appointment & 24/7 availability through technology onlineCommitted to Quality & Safety – Quality Improvement Goals which are tracked
40Benefits of Medical Homes Patients seek out the right care which is needed- which is often behavioral vs. physicalLess use of ER’s or delays in seeking careLess duplication of tests, labs & proceduresBetter control of chronic diseases & other illnesses improving health outcomesFocus on wellness & prevention – reduce incidence & severity of chronic disease or illnessesCost savings less use of ER’s & Hospitals
41What is moving the Patient Centered Home Health Model In April 2013 the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative Pointed out on it website these factors driving the Home Health ModelUnsustainable cost increases in health care deliveryGrowing availability of dataVast change in the way we communicateExample: 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.
43Potential Role of Mental Health Counselors in Medical Homes Address the stressors which lead folks to seek out medical attention in the first placeAssist in increasing compliance of patients with the medical directives given them by primary care staffWellness educational programming to help ward off chronic or severe illnessesAssisting clients to cope with the medical conditions for which they are receiving medical attention

45Accountable Care Organizations Have a look at the CMS video which overviews the ACO model:Now let’s look at the announcement of the Role Out of the ACO rules in 2011 to see what is hoped for in this model:/2011/03/accountablecare a.html
46Goal of ACO’sThe 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.
47So what are ACO’sACO assumes financial risk rather than 3rd party payers (government, business or insurance companies) for group of patients assigned to itConsists of more than one hospital & number of primary care clinics with full array of medical & health specialists- who self-refer to their own specialistsControl costs by being responsible for full care of patientsIntegration of mental & behavioral health services into Patient-centered medical homesEnhance patient outcomes through emphasis on prevention, compliance, and immediate 24/7 attentionUtilize an integrated behavioral medical approach
48How will ACO’s Work?The Affordable Care Organizations (ACO’s) is a large local health systemIt 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 patientsThe providers refer to other specialists inside of their own systemThese ACO’s have their own group of providers (which could include Clinical Mental Health Counselors) & by referring within the system controls costsACO’s are then responsible not only for their costs but also for the quality of their services to their patientsProviders are paid a flat fee that is risk adjusted for the severity of the issues facing the patientsThe ACO organization assumes the financial risk rather than the government, business or insurance companiesWhere Clinical Mental Health Counselors work and how they will be paid may change greatly in the future as these ACO’s become reality after full implementation of the ACA in 2014
49Utah’s Efforts under ACA Utah is one of 16 states which proposes to design an innovative statewide initiative to facilitate improved physician/patient communication & care coordinationGoal of improving health care quality & lowering costsThe state will convene a multi-stakeholder group that will address strategies for healthcare transformation in five key areas:Expanded health information technologyAdequate healthcare workforceWellness & healthy lifestyle promotionPayment reformMedical malpractice & dispute resolution.

52Prevention 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 provider:Alcohol Misuse: screening & counselingAlcohol and Drug Use: assessment for adolescentsBehavioral Assessment for children of all agesDepression: screening for adults & adolescentsDevelopmental screening: for children under age 3 & surveillance throughout childhoodDiet: counseling for adults at higher risk for chronic diseaseObesity: Screening & counseling for adults & childrenSexually Transmitted Infection (STI): prevention counseling for adults & adolescents at higher risk who are sexually activeTobacco Use: screening for all male & female adults & cessation interventions for tobacco users & expanded counseling for pregnant tobacco usersDomestic & interpersonal violence: screening & counseling for all womenWell-woman visits: to obtain recommended preventive services for women under 65
53Potential Clinical Setting Openings for CMHC’s with ACA Implementation Clinical Mental Health Counselors will be ideally situated to provide Behavioral Medical Interventions based on their expanded training and implementation of AMHCA’s Clinical Standards. They will then need to promote themselves in the following settings:General Practice: Family Practice & Internal Medicine ClinicsRehabilitation In-patient and out-patient CentersGeneral and Specialized HospitalsSenior Citizen’s Independent housing, Assisted Living & Nursing Homes
54What are the future prospects for the profession? Recognized for VA Positions in VA Hospitals and Field Agencies which is good given the OIF and OEF veterans complex health issuesAMHCA hopes to soon be recognized for Medicare ServicesIncreased work in Behavioral Medicine in Hospitals, Rehab Centers & Primary Care Physicians’ OfficesIncreased work in Substance Abuse & Alcohol Treatment Facilities
55Mental Health Needs of OEF & OIF Vets The invisible wounds which our OIF and OEF vets return with are staggeringPTSD and TBI along with Combat Depression are staggering disorders which are impacting from 1/3 to 2/3’s 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.CMHC’s need to be ready to serve this population
56Baby Boomer Generation are Aging The increase in Boomers aging and their impact on the medical and mental health field cannot be ignored or underestimatedIt is imperative that CMHC’s 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
57What Skills Do Mental Health Counselors Need? Ability to understand dynamics of Human Development to capture good psychosocial history of clientsDiagnosis of and treatment for behavioral pathologyEvidenced based practices in psychotherapy to provide credible treatment to clientsUnderstanding of basic neuroscience of brain and nervous system to understand roots of emotional responses to life’s stressorsUnderstanding of psychopharmacological treatment of psychopathology
