  • The National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE) is an examination managed by NBCC. The examination consists of 10 simulated clinical mental health counseling cases that are designed to sample a broad area of competencies, not merely the recall of isolated facts. The cases assess clinical problem-solving ability, including identifying, analyzing, diagnosing and treating clinical issues. Each case is divided into approximately five to eight sections that are classified as either information gathering or decision-making. The areas covered by the exam are listed here.The NCMHCE is primarily used for two purposes: national certification as a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) and state counselor licensure. For information about taking the examination for national certification as a CCMHC, please click here. To determine if your state board uses the NCMHCE for licensure purposes, click here.
