LMHP Supervision Requirement
The requirement that an LMHP-Type provider must supervise a QMHP-E's experience towards becoming either a QMHP-A or QMHP-C will be detrimental to the public behavioral healthcare system. There is currently a shortage of licensed mental health professionals in Virginia's public behavioral healthcare system. Continuing this requirement is excessive.
