The Governor’s Appointment Office is currently accepting applications for several seats on the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling. The Board was legislatively established to ensure that every clinical social worker, marriage and family therapist, and mental health counselor practicing in this state meets minimum requirements for safe practice. The Board is responsible for licensing, monitoring, disciplining and educating clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, and mental health counselors to assure competency and safety to practice in Florida.
The Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling plays a leading role in the ever-changing health care environment through dialogue with the public, the legislature, academia, and the community. The Board consists of nine members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Two members are licensed clinical social workers, two members are licensed marriage and family therapists, two members are licensed mental health counselors and three members are laypersons. The current seats available are: licensed mental health counselor, marriage and family therapist and a citizen of Florida state who is not and has never been licensed in a mental health-related profession and who is in no way connected with the practice of any of the regulated professions of this Board.
