I’m interested in international work. How can I become more involved with the Global Capacity Building department?

We offer opportunities to learn and engage with communities internationally through our institutes and Mental Health Facilitator programs.

As someone looking for opportunities abroad, I’m wondering whether the Global Capacity Building department has specific information on counseling status or developments in other countries.

NBCC has collaborated with a number of entities internationally and maintains a general familiarity with the mental health profession worldwide. As rules and regulations vary across countries and tend to change, we recommend contacting the country’s counseling or mental health associations or organizations for specific details.

Can I become a member of the Global Capacity Building department?

The Global Capacity Building department is part of NBCC’s Foundation and Professional Services division. NBCC serves board certified counselors (NCCs), and thus, you can benefit from Global Capacity Building department programs and opportunities simply by virtue of being an NCC. Counselors who are not NCCs and other mental health professionals also can participate in some Global Capacity Building department programs.
