North Carolina Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development


The North Carolina Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development seeks to improve ethnic and racial empathy and understanding and to advance education opportunities for non-white minorities.


Statement on Racialized Violence and Discrimination

As the state branch of the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development, we wholeheartedly support the following statement by our national association. We recognize that this is a stressful and overwhelming time for many of our members and that some are at a loss as to what they can do to make a difference in the anti-racism fight. While many great resources have been circulating via social media, we want to share one more way: get involved with NCACMD. Help us in the anti-racism movement in the counseling profession, the mental health arena and our communities.
