Since 2003, NBCC and Affiliates has worked with partners worldwide who are interested in professionalizing counseling and increasing mental health service capacity. In addition, through this work and these partnerships, NBCC has become aware that many counselors and counselor educators are also engaged in and dedicated to collaborating across borders and cultures. This has allowed for a better understanding of the differences, similarities, and mutual need for effective counseling and mental health training, practice, and research within and across borders.

Mental Health Connections: Advancing Global Health Equity

NBCC and the NBCC Foundation invite you to join us during our fourth international virtual conference, Mental Health Connections: Advancing Global Health Equity.

This conference will take place from November 29—December 1, 2023.
