Description

Approximately 74,000 mental health professionals are found in private practice across the United States, making it a popular path! Unfortunately, many mental health professionals complete their graduate coursework without receiving any formal training in business. Private practice practitioners increase accessibility of mental health services that are often aligned with client needs more directly. The hope is that this toolkit provides each participant with the knowledge and skills needed to create and operate sustainable practices for the benefit of self, clients, and the communities in which they operate!
