Mental Health Professionals
Mental health professionals have dedicated their careers to serving the mental, emotional and social needs of their patients. When allegations of malpractice, misconduct or criminal charges arise, many mental health professionals face possible revocation, suspension or other discipline of their professional licenses.
Becoming a psychologist, marriage and family therapist, psychiatrist or licensed clinical social worker can take years of study and hard work. One misstep should not put your license and your livelihood in jeopardy.
