IMHCA Vision Statement
The Idaho Mental Health Counselors Association, with the consistent standards of education, training, licensing, practice, and ethics, will be the state organization representing: Licensed Mental Health Providers, Licensed Professional Counselors, and other licensed clinical mental health clinicians recognized by the association. This is accomplished through empowering counselors with the knowledge, skills, and resources to promote their success in the profession.
IMHCA membership fees are used to support our up and coming counseling professionals.
How you ask? We currently have one $500 (cash) Fall 2017 scholarship.
Welcome from the President
Thank you for visiting the Idaho Mental Health Counselors Association’s website. My name is Michelle Hopkins and I am the current IMHCA president. I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with some of the most supportive and dedicated counselors this state has to offer. In the coming year my vision is to carry on the efforts put forth by the hardworking presidents before me such as valuable ethics trainings, website improvements, and membership benefits.
As we work to deliver some of the great benefits of being an IMHCA member, I encourage any and all feedback. If you feel as passionate about mental health counselors as we do and are looking for ways to get involved, let us know!
