Red Cross Needs Mental Health Help


Red Cross needs Disaster Mental Health assistance and anyone with 9 days to spare, please read the flier.  Rivers in the eastern part of the state have yet to crest.  North Carolina got harder hit than other southeastern states, which is where many of the DMH personnel were sent, so there is a need for DMH personnel.  From my reading of the request, you can help out even if you have not yet taken the Red Cross DMH training.  LPCs have been trained in DMH as part of their masters level training.  There is a need, so if you can, please help and contact the Red Cross as described in the flier.

Thank you,

John A. Shuford
Executive Director LPCANC

Letter Against HB2

The NCCA takes a firm stance against House Bill 2.

“We stand with the others who have expressed their opposition to our state government discriminating against the transgender population. As counselors, we believe people have a right to live, support their families and be prosperous, without fear of harassment, loss of job, or death. Citizens of North Carolina need to be supported by their government, the elected officials they voted into office. They need their officials to put laws in place that support the right to live, support their families, and be prosperous, not destroy it.” -Angela Brooks-Livingston, NCCA President
