Help counsel individuals and families with a specific set of problems or a mental health disorder when you graduate the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program of Johnson & Wells University.


This 18-month full-time program* begins each year during the first week of June as a cohort model and meets in the late afternoons and evenings. This flexible schedule allows opportunities for students to work at their field placements during the day and on weekends. The majority of the courses in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program of Johnson & Wells University are taught by full-time faculty who represent diverse areas of expertise including clinical, school, addictions and substance abuse, grief and rehabilitation counseling and social work.

Learn clinical skills by turning theoretical foundations into positive, ethical client interaction and intervention. Students are prepared to take the National Counselor Examination before graduation, allowing a distinct advantage upon entering the job market.

The program includes 12 core courses, 4 electives, a practicum and an internship. This fieldwork puts professional knowledge into practice, starting with a 150-hour practicum and ending with an internship under the supervision of clinical professionals. This work can be conducted at one or more sites and fulfills the 600 experiential field hours required for licensing. Many students continue on to full-time employment at the agency where they interned.
