The National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE)

The National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE) consists of 10 clinical simulations designed to sample a broad area of competencies, not merely the recall of isolated facts. The NCMHCE is a requirement for counselor licensure in many states and for the Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) national certification. The NCMHCE is also used by the military health systems.

The NCMHCE continues to undergo regular review and development to ensure it represents the current reality of practice and research in the counseling profession.
