Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Association, Inc.


MaMHCA/MCEAP has created Guidelines for LMHCs regarding appropriate Continuing Education for LMHCs. These guidelines have been approved by the Board of Registration of Allied Mental Health and Human Services Professions. 

Most CE Providers in Massachusetts have their CE offerings pre-approved by MaMHCA. This will appear on their marketing materials and CE Certificates. The Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Association (MaMHCA) is the designated entity of the Board of Registration of Allied Mental Health and Human Services Professions to approve providers of Continuing Education (CE) activities for Licensed Mental Health Counselors in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 


When an LMHC attends a CE event that has not been previously approved by MaMHCA, or NBCC, as required by the Allied Board of Mental Health and Human Service Professions, approval may be obtained retroactively by meeting the criteria for approval outlined in the MaMHCA LMHC Consumer Guidelines and the CMR 262 Regulations for LMHCs). With Retroactive Approval,  the CEs can be applied to the CE requirement to renew a license.

  • Once you download the LMHC Continuing Education guidelines, which will open in a download window on your device, please fill out the online “Retroactive Certification Form” and submit it to MaMHCA with the appropriate fees (there is a charge for processing and review of the application).
  • In a license renewal year, there is an increased processing fee after October 15
