Space Coast Mental Health Counselors Association

    The Space Coast Mental Health Counselors Association (SCMHCA) unites mental health professionals from Brevard County in Central Florida. 


    Our mission is to advance professional competency and strengthen the role of the mental health counselor in the local community.  

    SCMHCA is dedicated to improving skills through education for counseling professionals:  Licensed, non-licensed, private practice clinicians, educators, students, registered interns, and retirees.  

    Enhancing relationships through collaboration in the counseling profession and networking with our peers is a key component for us. 

    SCMHCA understands that the effect of a collection of people is greater than just one person.  We always strive to be a synergistic group.  SCMHCA is a chapter of the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association (FMHCA) which is a state chapter of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA).
