Mental Health Counseling prepares people to provide mental health services to individuals and groups in public and private settings. Graduates of this program often obtain LPC licensure with a Mental Health Service Provider endorsement, which allows then to work with cases of a more diagnostic and clinical nature. Licensure requires supervised clinical experience beyond the hours required for a degree.
