My advice is to find someone else to treat you. Most of the staff that actually counsel you are idiots. All that organization cares about is getting your medical card money and seeing how quickly they can get you on meds that you don't need. You will only see a real doctor about every two to three months and then only for about ten minutes. Otherwise you will see a social worker that doesn't know diddly about mental health.
If you are a vet check into the vetrans center there in Hazard.

you can't be hired on as a counselor unless you have a masters degree in mental health counseling. Like any other field, some ppl aren't cut out to be I'm the "helping" field and they only do it for the money. Others really have the heart for it and succeed as mental health professionals.

Master degree in social work is all it takes to be a counselor. You don't have to have a masters in counseling or have psychology. You can probably even counsel with a masters in human resources too. That is a new degree since I was in school.

Yes we are, but when u have a family member who is a patient there and in crisis and call for help u get none, they want to let the law handle it, and the law wants them to handle it, so we r very lucky to have these people who can set and do nothing but get their check.

Actually, to be able to provide mental heath counseling you must have a Masters Degree in Counseling, as well as be licensed through the state of Ky. The only exception is substance abuse which can be done with a Bachelors degree in addition to being certified as a CADC (certified alcohol and drug counselor). You can find more information on licensure at lpc.ky.gov

All it takes to become a mental health counselor is to be a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This is a master or beyond and about two years of working under someone that is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Then you set for your exam and become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I know a lady that was from India that worked as a mental health conselor who recieved her training in India and somehow passed a test in Kentucky. She couldn't speak real good English so I was surprised that she got her LCSW.
The CADC can be any undergraduate degree. It is easier. You still have to have so many hours of training and inservice. Plus you have to have a case study and oral exam.

You are correct for an LCSW; however there is also LPCA (Licensed Professional Counseling Associate and LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor). LCSW is an entity of social work, the clinical component allows them to become licensed as counselors. Each state has their own requirements for licensure, it is not uncommon, for a counselor to be licensed in more than one state. As far as international, I would assume if they had met the requirements for the state they are residing, they too, can become licensed.

That is why I went there several times last year. I have no criminal record, not even a misdemeanor, and I don't use drugs or alcohol. I have PTSD because of repeated sexual assault and going to court to testify against the person who did that to me. I just wanted to share my personal experience about KRCC. The person who I spoke to there made me very uncomfortable because they kept asking me questions each time that I saw them there that I felt like had NOTHING to do with why I was there, and they also made me feel "stigmatized" for even going there for help, such as "do you hear voices telling you to do things that you know are wrong", "do you see people or things that you know aren't actually there", and "do you ever get the urge to harm other people". I would always reply truthfully "NO. I'm just here on my own freewill because of I want to talk to someone about the depression that I have due to very bad things that happened to me, not because I want to do bad things to other people (which I don't ever want to do bad things to other people), or because of hallucinations (which I don't have, and never have had, thankfully). I can understand them asking questions like that once / the first time that a patient is seen by a therapist or a psychiatrist, but not every single time that they show up there if they have clearly stated that they are NOT doing those things, and they never have, and even after that has been well established. I also didn't like they way that the person I spoke to there kept looking at my hands, as if they thought that I was going to jump up and grab them by the neck for no reason, or something crazy like that. I wasn't doing anything weird or unusual with my hands or any other part of my body, so that made me feel really degraded too. I have heard other people with depression say similar things about their visits there (people who also don't have a criminal record, don't hallucinate, and don't have a substance abuse problem). Honestly, I didn't like much about my experiences there. When I moved to another state for better work, I received respectful treatment for PTSD there, which went very well, and I'm doing just fine. Someone else's experience may be different than mine and those other people's if they chose or choose to go to KRCC, but I'm just being totally honest about mine. I wish the absolute best for everyone who is suffering from depression or any type of mental illness, and I hope that they get help somewhere when they need it. No one should ever feel ashamed or be made to feel ashamed for reaching out to ask for help for themselves when they know that they do need it.

I'm sorry about the typos in my last post. I forgot to proofread it before I clicked "post", and I didn't sleep well last night, so it wasn't typed perfectly. I hope that the point that I was trying to make is clearly understood though.

I just wanted to say that your experience at KRCC sounds very similar to my "one and only" experience there almost 9 years ago. I also went through a very similar experience concerning why you went there in the first place, and instead of feeling better after I left, I felt worse. I was sexually assaulted by a much older male relative when I was a kid (he did go to jail for it). I was having nightmares about the assault when I was 20 and 21 years old, which caused insomnia and depression. That's why I went to KRCC. Instead of feeling like I was going to get help for that, I felt like I was being accused of being psychotic after all the crazy questions that I was asked by a male therapist who blinked and shifted his eyes a lot, tapped his fingers against his desk in a very annoying manner, and caused me to wonder why he wasn't a patient instead of a therapist. He asked me about seeing people who weren't really present, hearing voices that weren't really speaking, and having notions about wanting to hurt random people, all of which I never have done. It was a very uncomfortable experience. I'm glad to see someone else speaking out about their experience there as well, and for the record, I, too, got help somewhere else, and 8 years later, I'm still doing great.

As a victim of sexual assault, it's difficult to talk with a male therapist. Many years later, I still see a therapist, just not any men. I wish you the best.

Thank you. I wish you the best, too, and I agree wholeheartedly about it being difficult to talk to a male therapist about sexual assault. I don't know why they set me up with one to talk to when I told them why I was there. I always thought that was strange. He didn't seem to have any compassion, even when I got slightly emotional once during the session because of a question that he asked about "the incident". He didn't even say anything comforting. I felt so awkward and uncomfortable. It was painful. I just wanted to forget the whole experience just like "the incident", but sadly, I couldn't. I sure hope that anyone else who receives treatment there has a much better experience than I did almost 9 years ago.

The problem with finding someone else for treatment is that around here there doesn't seem to be many other options besides KRCC-related things for treatment for things like depression, anxiety and / or obsessive compulsive disorder.
