Welcome to the Maryland Counseling Association
July is Minority Mental Health Month in the State of Maryland by Proclamation of Gov. Hogan!
Please join me in welcoming our new MCA leadership officers for 2020-2021!
The MCA 2020 Election Results are as follows:
President-Elect--- Dr. Sara Pula
Treasurer--- Dr. Keyona Hall
Secretary-Elect—Dr. Danielle LaSure-Bryant
April 2020 is Counseling Awareness Month!
Please know that MCA is here for you at this difficult time. Reach out to a licensed counselor to obtain help at this time of isolation. Many counselors are offering Telemental health to meet the needs of the community.
It may be useful to do an internet search for an LCPC - Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor or an LGPC - Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor with expertise with a wide variety of issues that relate to anger, ostracism, parenting, marriage, family, children, career, or grief and loss.
Additional resources for counselors and the public can be found at the American Counseling Association (ACA) website: https://www.counseling.org/counselingawarenessmonth
