The demand for mental health services is increasing rapidly and this growth has increased the demand for licensed mental health providers across the country.
“The mental health industry is becoming a multi-billion dollar industry as more people suffer from mental illness. Because the demand for mental healthcare providers has increased so rapidly the need for qualified mental health providers is growing at the same time. As a result the pay for mental health therapists and mental health counselors is rising. In addition because mental health is a rapidly growing industry many companies are providing competitive pay packages to qualified therapists and counselors. It’s not uncommon to find a qualified therapist or psychologist for a modest monthly fee” said Lisa Knehn president of Professional Therapists Arizona (PTAA). “I think the availability of such a service in Phoenix has been the major draw.” The demand for mental health services is growing rapidly and this growth has increased the demand for qualified mental health therapists and counselors in Phoenix.
Today mental health professionals in Phoenix are required to be licensed psychologists social workers and psychiatrists in order to practice their profession. However there are no formal guidelines for mental health therapists and counselors in Arizona. There are some community colleges and vocational schools that offer courses that cover counseling and therapy techniques but it is not mandatory for mental health professionals to enroll in these programs. Therefore it is up to the prospective therapist or counselor to determine whether he or she will go to these programs or not. When choosing the mental health professional that you want to work with ask for references meet with the therapist or counselor and consider their training and experience before hiring them.
