We are not aware of any specific rules and regulations of the practice of telemental health services for Counselors.
The New Hampshire Board of Mental Health Practice notes the following:
If you are located in New Hampshire and are providing mental health services to a consumer located in another jurisdiction, you are considered to be practicing in New Hampshire and need to be licensed in this State.

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).
