    2. Legislative & Public Policy Committee. (LPPC)

    1. New Projects
      1. Working with Senator Kennedy, BHWW, and UAMFT on legislative changes
        1. From Anna's email on 12/27/2021
          1. On 12/7/21 I sent a request for an email board vote that UMHCA would not support a reduction in supervised practice hours. This is was overwhelming approved by the UMHCA board.
        • ·          LPPC and Gray followed up on this and Gray met with Senator Kennedy on 12/17/21 and has been in communication with the BHWW. To discuss UMHCA’s concerns and clarify the reason for this change in law. Senator Kennedy is very concerned about the increase in mental health problems (esp. suicide) and current challenges to access to mental health professionals and the proposed legislation to decrease practice hours to 3000 for MHC’s is an attempt to increase access. Gray expressed UMHCA’s stance and explained how decreasing practice hours would not improve access or number of mental health counselors.
        • ·          A meeting was held with LPPC last week to brainstorm alternative legislation to the current one proposed.
        • ·          LPPC and I support an alternative legislative change to increase the timeframe to obtain full licensure following completion of the 4000 supervised practice hours. This will increase the mental health workforce by allowing more time for ACMHC licensure extensions due to problems with passing the NCMHCE and NCE. This is timely as I know the NBCC is currently working on revising all of their exams.
    2. Christopher Austin has joined the LPPC and will be working on newsletters and attending DOPL meetings.
    3. Legislative session begins January 19. BHWW will be compiling and distributing a list of mental health-related bills soon.
