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 Kim Howard,
    1) what your license requires for providing telemental health and
    2) what the receiving state (where client is located) requires for those acting as "guests" delivering service in their state
    Since each state and licensing board is different, we have pulled together a resource that lists rules and regulations for all of them: 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: Home Page | CCHP Website

    Are there any temporary provisions in place in the state of Ohio, during the Covid-19 pandemic for individuals with a mental health license (LCMHC in NH) to provide telehealth services to a current client who will be residing in Ohio for a period of time? Thank you!

    Once I do the training is there another step to get certified in telehealth in Ohio?

    Can I do teletherapy as a LPC in Ohio? Or do I have to be independent (LPCC)? Thanks.

    @Ellery Woo, It will be important to check with the applicable board about their current stance, as it is impossible for us to track the changes happening nationally and applied to each license in each state.

    I am inquiring about the Ohio Board of Psychology's current stance on out-of- state licensed psychologists providing telepsychotherapy to clients currently residing in Ohio in response to impact of COVID-19.
