New LPC Supervisor Minimum Qualifications

New requirements for Licensed Professional Counselors who provide clinical supervision will go into effect on September 1st, 2021. These requirements were established by HB20-1206, the Mental Health Sunset Act. Originally, HB20-1206 was thought to have created a new designation, the Licensure Professional Counselor - Supervisor, or LPC-S. However, this was not the case. The Mental Health Sunset Act redefined clinical supervision and established new minimum qualifications.
