THTC Program Button

Telemental health is not a separate service from mental health services. All state licensing boards require that licensed clinicians follow all the regulations for practicing under their license no matter what medium of communication is used. All licensing boards also require that clinicians only practice within the boundaries of their competence. This usually requires education, continuing education, and/or supervision in telemental health. Complete our telehealth training program to cover all the essential competencies of providing telemental health services and earn the THTC (Telemental Health Training Certificate).

    Hi Trish Howard, that is often allowed by state licensing boards. However, be sure to check with all applicable boards that govern your LCSW license in NY and WI to be sure.

    Hi Mary Lynn,
    Some states allow temporary services from clinicians not licensed in that state. We could not find any such statement from the Wisconsin board governing your license type. That said, they may have COVID-19 waivers in place. Upon looking, I could not find anything listed. The following has some information regarding behavioral health professionals utilizing telehealth during this time, and contact info is listed at the bottom.
