HSB 138 is Dead, Feb. 28, 2017

HSB 138 is officially dead! Thanks to all of you who emailed, called and attended the subcommittee.  Today, HSB 174 was introduced and includes a ban on any new licensure programs and establishes a licensure board programmatic review committee. It does not impact licensure for marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors or social workers. It does establish a committee to review and make recommendations for all professions that are required to have licensure. This is an opportunity for mental health providers to be involved in that process, and IMHCA will ensure its members are represented at that table! Know that your voices will continue to be heard!
