April is Counseling Awareness Month

The American Counseling Association (ACA) designates April of each year as Counseling Awareness Month (CAM). This is a time of advocacy for the profession and celebration of the outstanding counselors in a myriad of settings as they seek to facilitate the growth and development of all people. The month of April signifies the recognition of all mental health counselors and the people who they are privileged to serve. We celebrate inner strengths, resiliency, overcoming barriers and reaching goals.
