E&H Launches Mental Health Counseling Program

Emory & Henry College School of Health Sciences is launching a new Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program in the fall of 2021 pending approval by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

Posted October 01, 2020

The program is a 60-credit, 24-month program, consisting of six consecutive semesters. The master’s degree program prepares clinical mental health counselors for a rewarding profession which emphasizes prevention of emotional and mental health concerns, early intervention when problems are identified, and client empowerment.

Dr. Stephanie Hall is founding department chair and program director. Hall has extensive experience in counselor education and program accreditation. She has been a site visitor for the Council of Accreditation for Counseling and Related Educational Programs for 12 years and previously chaired a counselor education department with a large graduate program in New Jersey.

“This program will have an interdisciplinary focus. Our counseling students will be training alongside students enrolled in the E&H physician’s assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing programs,” says Dr. Hall. “We believe that this experience will be invaluable to students and will contribute to a more holistic view of care for the clients that they serve.”

  • Provost Expresses Appreciation

    ”I simply cannot say enough to express my appreciation of the faculty for how they have responded and adapted to the pandemic. I know it has been an extremely challenging semester for both faculty and students, but both have worked in unison to continue the excellent educational experience for which Emory & Henry is known. I visited several classes this semester – some with students both face to face and remote, others entirely remote – at each of our instructional locations, and I went away from each and every one of those classes impressed by the level of engagement I saw and the efforts of the instructors to find ways to keep students involved and on task. More than ever, I am just in awe of our tremendous faculty.”
