Our Global Capacity Building efforts help advance mental health care worldwide—reaching more underserved and never-served populations—by promoting certification and professionalism in counseling.
We do this with the utmost care and respect for the social, cultural, political, and economic realities of the areas where we are invited. We offer a range of programs, collaborating with regional and national organizations as they shape their credentialing policies, assessment methods, and training requirements to the needs of their populations.
Travel with NBCC to exciting locations all over the world! We provide counselors who are board certified, as well as other counselors, counseling students, and other professionals a chance to interact with new cultures and learn about the community's mental health needs and available resources.
Establish a professional counseling certification in your country. NBCC collaborates with local counseling leaders to create counseling certifications infused with country-specific professional requirements and standards.
Would you like to learn more about mental health skills, spread awareness, or combat stigma? The Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) program provides foundational mental health helping and referral skills trainings to match your community’s needs.
We offer opportunities to learn and engage with communities internationally through our institutes and Mental Health Facilitator programs.
NBCC has collaborated with a number of entities internationally and maintains a general familiarity with the mental health profession worldwide. As rules and regulations vary across countries and tend to change, we recommend contacting the country’s counseling or mental health associations or organizations for specific details.
The Global Capacity Building department is part of NBCC’s Foundation and Professional Services division. NBCC serves board certified counselors (NCCs), and thus, you can benefit from Global Capacity Building department programs and opportunities simply by virtue of being an NCC. Counselors who are not NCCs and other mental health professionals also can participate in some Global Capacity Building department programs.
