In North Carolina, psychology has both doctoral-level and master's-level practitioners. Professional counselors, clinical addiction specialists, clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists require only a master's degree. Of the five allied professional mental health care disciplines, only master's-level psychologists currently requires career-long supervision. The adjacent table reflect the number of licenses per year for each discipline for 2013 through 2018, inclusive, and the growth of licensees in percentage and members. The table indicates a 4% decline in LPAs, a 6% increase in LPs while the other four disciplines have grown from 24% to 165%. The time is now for a call to action to preserve our profession and our practice.
