Petition Title Qualifications for registration as a QMHP-C
Date Filed 12/28/2018   
Petitioner Michelle Morganegg 
Petitioner's Request

To revise regulations to accept a bachelor's degree in criminology and criminal justice to qualify for registration as a QMHP-C and to accept supervised experience obtained in another state.

Agency's Plan

In accordance with Virginia law, the petition will be filed with the Register of Regulations and published on January 21, 2019 with comment requested until February 20, 2019.  It will also be placed on the Virginia Regulatory Townhall and available for comments to be posted electronically. At its first meeting following the close of comment, scheduled for May 31, 2019, the Board will consider the request to amend regulations and all comment received in support or opposition.

The Board is currently in the process of replacing the emergency regulations for QMHPs with permanent regulations. It has already proposed to add a provision allowing for acceptance of supervision obtained in another state provided that supervision was provided by a mental health professional licensed in Virginia or licensed in that jurisdiction, so that part of the petition has already been addressed.


Comment Period Ended 2/20/2019
Agency Decision Pending
