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 Katrina M Fowlkes,
    We do offer a training program called the TeeMental Health Training (THTC Certificate) program.
    The TeleMental Health Training (THTC Certificate) Program is a comprehensive training program that covers all of the competencies, legalities, and ethics involved when providing care from a distance
    By completing our THTC program you meet the training requirement to apply for the BC-TMH (Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider) credential.

    Hello, I am a LCSW licensed in CA. I work for a group private psychotherapy practice and have been approached by an individual in Maryland to engage in telemental health sessions with her. Are there any restrictions in MD that would restrict me from practicing telemental health with a resident ib MD? CA laws state to check with the out-of-state jurisdiction for laws and regulations. Please advise, thank you.
