The Association of Mormon Counselors and Psychotherapists (AMCAP) began in 1975 as a small group of LDS mental health professionals who would share informal reunions at professional conferences. They found a need to more formally incorporate themselves into a professional organization that could acknowledge their spirituality in the context of their professional training and experience. Since then, AMCAP has grown into an international organization whose members share adherence to the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
AMCAP is unique from all other professional organizations, in that its members are brought together not by sharing the same professional orientation, but rather by a united commitment to the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members who are richly diverse in their geographic location, professional training, age, gender, and specialty come together to edify one another in a spirit of brotherhood and an atmosphere of faith.
Members of AMCAP benefit from the organization in a variety of ways. AMCAP provides information and support for LDS Counselors and Therapists as well as professional mental health training and continuing education.
