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).

    @Mary Flora,
    Unfortunately, there's no straightforward answer regarding international counseling. The location of the client (Czech Republic) is where you need to investigate a number of things to ensure legality, cultural competency, emergency management, etc. We go over all of these steps in our Legal Aspects of TeleMental Health course.
    However, the summary is to investigate whether the services you offer are regulated in the Czech Republic to an extent that you would be violating their laws. Insurance, of course, is a completely different investigation.
    Below are 2 resources that should be helpful:

    I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in both NC and GA in the USA. If I want to provide mental health telehealth services to individuals in the Czech Republic is there a Telehealth training or certification that addresses the international telehealth service provider and where can I find international law/regulations pertaining to this situation?

    Thank you,

    Mary Flora

    @Phara Gladden, Thanks for joining our training and for the positive remarks!
    In answer to your question: There was a waiver in NC allowing out-of-state clinicians to practice telehealth with NC residents from April through June 7th. it is important to check with the SW board in NC to see if they have extended it. If you go to the following link and select the 8th FAQ listed, it has answers regarding temporary permission to practice without a NC license:'s%2005-05-2020.pdf

    My name is Phara Gladden and I took the two-day Telemental Health Certificate course with Ray and not only enjoyed it ,but learned a lot about providing telehealth.
    I'm currently a licensed SW in the state os NY,and I have a client that I currently see who is planning on vacationing in North Carolina for a couple of weeks, and wants to continue his weekly telehealth sessions. My question is can I continue to provide teletherapy while he is out of state? and are there any restrictions with seeing a client that is out of state temporarily or vacationing. I'm hoping someone can help me with this question ..not sure where to look.

    If I am a part-time resident of NC and wish to offer telemental health services from there to clients in Georgia where I am fully licensed and already meet the training requirements for telemental health, is there any issue?

    @Eve H Quesada
    Thanks for asking. We cover this in our Legal Aspects of TeleMental Health course, but we do not provide legal advice. Your best bet will be to contact the NC board governing social workers. Here's a link to their site:

    I am a LCSW practicng and licensed in California. I had a client move to North Carolina and would like to do some sessions via teletherapy. Is that possible with North Carolina's policies?
