Interested in entering the challenging yet rewarding field of mental health? Cameron University’s CU Be a Therapist, a virtual information session, will present information on how a Master of Arts in Mental Health degree can lead to licensure as a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT) or a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) on Thursday, November 16, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Licensed Professional Counselors focus on mental, emotional and behavioral issues in a variety of healthcare settings. They work with individuals, groups, and couples in roles as wide-ranging as community mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, private practice, vocational counseling and more. Professional counselors work to empower clients to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals.
Licensed Marital and Family Therapists (LMFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems. They are licensed to diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of marriage, couples and family systems. Marriage and family therapy is brief, solution-focused, specific with attainable therapeutic goals, and designed with the "end in mind."
