Welcome to the NYMHCA's Learning Academy! It was developed to address the continuing education needs of New York’s LMHC’s. Licensed mental health counselors 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. Self-study includes self reviewed PowerPoints and therapeutic books.
- Two thirds of the requirement are live in-person and live online. Live in-person and live online (webinar) includes interactions with the presenter (question and answer opportunities).
NYMHCA’s Learning Academy can provide you with the continuing education that you need!
