Counseling students can now seek a brighter future with Montreat College’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) program starting January 8, 2024.  Accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), this newly designed online format empowers students with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the dynamic field of mental health counseling.

What Makes the Montreat CMHC Program Stand Out?

  • Comprehensive Online Learning: Our 60-credit CACREP accredited online model ensures you’re well-prepared for a diverse range of professional settings, from private practice to non-profits to government agencies.
  • The Perfect Blend: We’ve designed the perfect blend of online convenience with real-world experience. With our program, you’ll enjoy 8 and 15 week online courses with assignments and assessments that help you build a rock-solid knowledge base in counseling.
  • Hands-on Residencies: Two face-to-face residencies are strategically woven into the program to provide student support and engagement. These immersive, 5-day, in-person experiences give you practical skills and real-world exposure that set you up for an exceptional career in mental health counseling.

“The online format with residencies represents a significant advancement in the CMHC program, making the Montreat CMHC experience both flexible and engaging,” shared Dr. Paul Gratton, Interim Vice President for the School of Adult and Graduate Studies. “The Montreat CMHC program gives students a deep understanding of mental health and equips our graduates to serve as skilled and compassionate counselors in our world today.”
