Why study Clinical Mental Health Counseling?
Today’s insurance plans are required by law to cover treatment for mental health issues — and people are seeking care in record numbers. In fact, in the United States alone, employment of clinical mental health counselors is projected to grow by 19% through 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
Even more compelling: One in five adults — roughly 44 million Americans — endures mental illness in a given year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. What does that mean for aspiring clinical mental health counselors like you? It means you have nearly 44 million opportunities to inspire change and improve lives.
