2 From Dream to Reality in 1976 On an impulsive whim Nancy and Jim: Coined term Mental Health Counselor Coined Association Title: The American Mental Health Counselors Association As the process caught fire Established the Profession of Mental Health Counseling Set out to create its Hallmarks of a Profession

3 What are the Hallmarks of a Profession? 1.Professional Membership Organization 2.Code of Ethics 3.Certification and Licensure 4.Accreditation 5.Research into Effectiveness of Service Deliver y

4 History Timeline of Creation of Mental Health Counseling Profession 1976 – Coining of term Mental Health Counselor and formation of American Mental Health Counselors Association as Division of ACA 1979 – Creation of the National Academy of Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselors 1981 – First State Law to license Mental Health Counselors put into effect in Florida 1985 – AMHCA had over 12,000 members 2011 – AMHCA put out its newest Standards of Practice in Mental Health Counseling-Helping to put Health back into Clinical Mental Health Counseling 2013 – AMHCA has over 7,000 members

5 The National Professional Association of Clinical Mental Health Counselors American Mental Health Counselors Association Founded in 1976 when term Mental Health Counselor was coined

6 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: 1.Promotion of healthy lifestyles 2.Identification of individual stressors & personal levels of functioning 3.Preservation or restoration of mental health (Seiler & Messina, 1979)

7 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: 1.Psychotherapy 2.Human Development 3.Learning Theory 4.Group Dynamics 5.Etiology of mental illness & dysfunctional behavior to individuals, couples, families and groups, for the purpose of promoting optimal mental health, dealing with normal problems of living and treating psychopathology…

9 Regional Chapters of State MHCAs State Chapters of AMHCA

10 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

11 CODES OF ETHICS Governing Clinical Mental Health Counselors

12 National Certification

13 NBCCs National Certifications for Mental Health Counselors NCC: National Certified Counselor – Over 48,000 CCMHC: Founded 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

14 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 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 (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 2012 Vermont-Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) Washington-Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

16 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

17 AMHCAs Online Newsletter

18 Research in the field is Reported in AMHCAs Journal

19 Accreditation: 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

Little change is being recommended for the next round of CACREP Standards & AMHCAs 2011 Standards have had little impact on what is being proposed at the current time. Lets see if this will matter based on future trends.

28 The 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-employed By ,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.

29 Parity with the Other Mental Health Professions The median reimbursable fee for service: Clinical Mental Health Counselors is $63 Psychologists is $75 for psychologists Clinical Social Workers & Marriage and Family Therapists is $60 (January 2006 study by Psychotherapy Finances)

30 SO! What do Mental Health Counselors Currently Do? Mental Health Counselors offer full range of services: Assessment & diagnosis Treatment planning and utilization review Psychotherapy Brief and solution-focused therapy Alcoholism and substance abuse treatment Psycho-educational & prevention programs Crisis management Trauma Intervention

31 ACAs 20/20 Commissions 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.

32 BUT 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

33 New AMHCA Clinical Standards Help CMHC to Get Ready for Changes in System The Affordable Care behavioral medicine interventions 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 settings.

34 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 categories

35 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

36 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

37 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, coordinated, 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

38 Two Healthcare Organizational Models which are Driving Change Two New Medicare/Medicaid models are driving a change in healthcare delivery: 1.Patient Centered Medical Homes 2.Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)

39 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

40 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

41 What 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 Model 1.Unsustainable cost increases in health care delivery 2.Growing availability of data 3.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.


43 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 staff 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 attention

44 Primary and Behavioral Health Integration Grants based on Medical Home Model in ACA In Utah: Weber Human Services-Ogden, Utah In Florida: 1.Apalachee Center–Tallahassee 2.Community Rehabilitation Center-Jacksonville 3.LifeStream Behavioral Center-Leesburg 4.Lakeside Behavioral Center–Orlando 5.Coastal Behavioral Health Care-Sarasota 6.Miami Behavioral Health Center-Miami

45 Accountable Care Organizations Have a look at the CMS video which overviews the ACO model: 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: /2011/03/accountablecare a.html

46 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.

47 So what are ACOs 1.ACO assumes financial risk rather than 3 rd 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 specialists 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 attention 6.Utilize an integrated behavioral medical approach

48 How will ACOs Work? The Affordable Care Organizations (ACOs) is a large local health system 1.It usually includes more than one hospital and a number of primary care clinics. 2.It is this whole system which is in charge of the care of its patients 3.The providers refer to other specialists inside of their own system 4.These ACOs have their own group of providers (which could include Clinical Mental Health Counselors) & by referring within the system controls costs 5.ACOs are then responsible not only for their costs but also for the quality of their services to their patients 6.Providers are paid a flat fee that is risk adjusted for the severity of the issues facing the patients 7.The ACO organization assumes the financial risk rather than the government, business or insurance companies 8.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

49 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 coordination Goal of improving health care quality & lowering costs The state will convene a multi-stakeholder group that will address strategies for healthcare transformation in five key areas: 1.Expanded health information technology 2.Adequate healthcare workforce 3.Wellness & healthy lifestyle promotion 4.Payment reform 5.Medical malpractice & dispute resolution.

50 Key Players in Utah working on ACA innovations Organizations 1.IHC Health Services (Intermountain Health Care) 2.Trustees Of Dartmouth College 3.State of Utah Hospital working on ACA innovation Salt Lake Regional Medical Center Utahs Innovation Advisors 1.Nancy Murphy MD 2.Victoria Wilkins MPH, MD 3.Sarah Woolsey MD,

51 Accountable Care Organizations Current Utah ACOs Health Choice at Healthy U at University of Utah at Molina at /pages/home.aspx /pages/home.aspx SelectHealth at Central Utah Clinic, P.C. (Provo, Utah) IASIS Health Care Org at very open to creation of ACOs in their hospital localities: IASIS Utah Hospitals Davis Hospital and Medical Center, Layton, UT Jordan Valley Medical Center, West Jordan, UT Pioneer Valley Hospital, West Valley City, UT Salt Lake Regional Medical Center, Salt Lake City, UT Health Choice Utah Accountable Care LLC

52 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 provider: 1.Alcohol Misuse: screening & counseling 2.Alcohol and Drug Use: assessment for adolescents 3.Behavioral Assessment for children of all ages 4.Depression: screening for adults & adolescents 5.Developmental screening: for children under age 3 & surveillance throughout childhood 6.Diet: counseling for adults at higher risk for chronic disease 7.Obesity: Screening & counseling for adults & children 8.Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI): prevention counseling for adults & adolescents at higher risk who are sexually active 9.Tobacco Use: screening for all male & female adults & cessation interventions for tobacco users & expanded counseling for pregnant tobacco users 10.Domestic & interpersonal violence: screening & counseling for all women 11.Well-woman visits: to obtain recommended preventive services for women under 65

53 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

54 What 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 issues AMHCA hopes to soon be recognized for Medicare Services Increased work in Behavioral Medicine in Hospitals, Rehab Centers & Primary Care Physicians Offices Increased work in Substance Abuse & Alcohol Treatment Facilities

55 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

56 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

57 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 pathology Evidenced based practices in psychotherapy to provide credible treatment to clients Understanding of basic neuroscience of brain and nervous system to understand roots of emotional responses to lifes stressors Understanding of psychopharmacological treatment of psychopathology

58 SO whats Up in Utah? Related to all these Changes?
