Consumer
Mental Health Resources

At present this page is limited to resources in the United States and some Canadian Provinces.  Many State and Provincial Governments now allow the consumer to check on the licensure status of the various professionals who hold licenses to practice in that State or Province.  Where possible this section will contain links to the various web sites which allow the consumer to check on whether a professional is in fact licensed, and in some cases whether there are any disciplinary actions which have been taken against that professional by the board.  Some States have a single central agency responsible for such record keeping, often the Secretary of State's office or the Department of Public Health, but many have multiple separate Boards of Examiners (or Colleges in Canada).  When in doubt we have found that calling the Secretary of State's Office on how to obtain information about a professional's licensure status to be the single best source of such information.  

Many of the States and Provinces have web sites for such inquiries but some make such information VERY hard to find, either because of poor planning or poor identification of various offices and departments roles.  We have worked very hard to track down the right office for the consumer to check on various Mental Health Professionals or to lodge complaints about those professionals.  If you know of a resource in this area that is not listed, including how to check on professionals in other countries (or find one of our links to be out of date), please let us know.

  "The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is an organization of 24 approved medical specialty boards.  The intent of the certification of physicians is to provide assurance to the public that those certified by an ABMS Member Board have successfully completed an approved training program and an evaluation process assessing their ability to provide quality patient care in the specialty.  The ABMS serves to coordinate the activities of its Member Boards and to provide information to others concerning issues involving specialization and certification of medical specialists."  The website provides up to 5 free board credential checks to the public per 24 hour period. 

There is also a clearing house of information on Licensed Occupations that SOME States belong to called LOIS.  The Licensed Occupation Information System (LOIS) offers three basic search options: 1) By State; 2) By Commonly Used Occupational Titles; 3) By State Agencies That License Occupations.
