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).

    I'm and LMFT in Indiana and have not been able to find anything in the rules and regs. If anyone else has, please let me know. I'm still waiting to hear back from the licensing board regarding the rules and regs.

    @Dave Turo-Shields, Excellent question. As of when we updated this page (11/2019), there were not explicit telehealth training requirements for Indiana social workers or counselors who wished to provider services in this way. The training we provide, however, covers all the competencies of providing telehealth services ethically and competently as required by each clinician's code of ethics. To see the topics/ competencies covered in our training, feel free to visit the link below or give us a call at 585-687-8837 https://telementalhealthtraining.com/course-offerings/product/telemental-health-training-certificate-thtc-online-self-study

    Hello, I own a group psychotherapy practice in Indianapolis with 12 therapists. Several of my therapists are interested in providing phone and video counseling services. Are there any additional education, courses or CEUs that they are expected to take? Additionally, can they provide those services to clients outside of Indiana? We have folks who are licensed social workers as well as licensed mental health counselors.

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
