New York Mental Health Counselors Association has been approved by the New York State Education Department as a provider of continuing education for Licensed Mental Health Counselors.

 Welcome to the NYMHCA's Learning Academy!  It was developed to address the continuing education needs of New York’s LMHC’s. As of January 1, 2017, LMHC's are required by the NY State Education Department to complete 36 hours of continuing education in order to renew their licenses every 3 years.

-      One third of those 36 hours can be self-study.

-      Two thirds of the requirement are live in-person and live online.

  NYMHCA’s Learning Academy can provide you with the continuing education that you need!
