Grad Student Outreach Program

| Association for Mental Health ProfessionalsOne of the main reasons the AMHP was established was to do something about the knowledge gap between grad school and completed licensure as a mental health professional. The pitfalls are many and unforgiving and this is our collective attempt to help bridge that gap and properly mentor the next generation of counselors.

What Our Outreach Program Looks Like

We've developed an information and resource rich pdf document for grad students, recent grads, and associates. We reach out to institutions of higher education with a mental health program and offer to make a presentation during a grad student's 3rd year when they most need the information.

Then, we hold a virtual meeting/presentation several times a year with a team of Supervisors and Associates to discuss and explain the material (and, yes, we need non-supervisors as well on the team). We offer a lot of support to these soon-to-be-grads including monthly webinars for AMHP members including our grad-student and associate members, and a weekly podcast about counseling and the road ahead. We have a lot to offer the next gen.
