Supervision and Education Requirements

The supervision requirements continue to be too stringent.  Requiring a QMHP to have been supervised by someone with a license will continue to create hiring hardships.  It is appreciated that experience and supervision in other juristictions will now be allowed to count.

We often get staff that have significant experience providing services in another country.  The present language does not allow for consideration of that experience.  The regulatory language should be trained to allow for that experience.
