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 Ashley Fennell, Since each state and licensing board is different, we have pulled together a few resource's that list the rules and regulations for each state: https://www.telementalhealthtraining.com/states-rules-and-regulations
    There are 2 other resources that have updated information (even temporary) with regard to the COVID-19 situation, The Center for Connected Health Policy: https://www.cchpca.org/

    You will want to check the laws in the state you are licensed in as well as the state your client is located in.
    I would also reach out to the board governing your license in CO to confirm.

    If I have a client I have been seeing in Colorado through Tele-counseling and they are moving to a different state would I still be able to see them through Tele-counseling? I know the state they are moving to allows for this, but I am unsure if Colorado would permit it.

    If I am registered as an LMFT in California, with the teletherapy certification, could I practice in Colorado?

    Hi Bella, this is Anthony from Telehealth Certification Institute. I would reach out to the board governing your license in CO to see if they require you to be in-state when providing services to clients that are in Colorado at the time of service. Some boards treat the location of both client and provider as the place of service.

    Could Colorado Licensed Professional Counselor provide telehealth to Colorado residents even if the counselor lives outside Colorado?

    I don't have a license as an MFT. But I am a Registered Psychotherapist in the state of Colorado, and I a CAC III, with the State of Colorado. Would that be enough to provide Telehealth therapy?

    Are licensed psychotherapists, LSW, LCSW able to practice teletherapy with clients in a state outside of Colorado if they are not licensed in that state?
