The Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) Program at Antioch University promotes the development of professional identity by encouraging an active and continuous examination of one’s self as an individual, one’s self as a professional counselor, and one’s self as a social justice advocate.



The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Antioch University is devoted to training students from diverse backgrounds, endorsing the principles of social justice by confronting oppression and injustice, and working with underserved populations. Students are prepared, as professional counselors, to work with individuals, groups, and social systems within a multicultural global community to promote mental health and well-being for all.

This CACREP-accredited counselor education program, with a specialty area in clinical mental health counseling, trains students in eight (8) core areas: professional counseling orientation and ethical practice, social and cultural diversity, human growth and development, career development, counseling, and helping relationships, group counseling and group work, assessment and testing, and research and program evaluation.

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) Department is part of Antioch University New England (AUNE) in Keene, NH. The CMHC Program is offered in two deliveries: Online with two-week-long intensive residencies and Weekend Low-Residency (in Keene, NH).
