Save the Arizona Counseling Profession!
Tell Legislators to Vote NO on SB 1482!
Senate Bill 1482 will change licensure requirements for counselors in the state of Arizona. AzCA is against this measure as it will open the door for unqualified individuals to the practice and could expose patients to potential harmful situations. Without proper and regulated licensure, the door is open for individuals to abuse the system and patients.
It takes many years of education to obtain the proper credentials to become a licensed therapist or counselor. AzCA does not want patients engaging with unqualified individuals with no professional training in the mental health field.
We are requesting that state senators vote NO on this harmful bill.
