Millions of people around the world have little or no access to mental health services. The NBCC Foundation is bridging this gap.

Scholarships, capacity-building grants, and innovative training are our primary tools for accomplishing the objectives of increasing the number of National Certified Counselors; ensuring that they work in high priority areas; and engaging them in the innovation of counseling practices for underserved military, rural, and minority communities.

All proceeds from the 2018 Bridging the Gap Virtual Summit go directly to fund NBCC Foundation programs. With your help we can meet our goal of $50,000.

When you register for the Summit, you decide what you want to pay to attend, starting from just $25 for access to the entire event.

There are no other fees for attendance, and every cent of your registration fee goes directly to the NBCC Foundation.

So what do you get for your registration fee?

With costs escalating in the last few years, your continuing education dollars don’t go as far as they once did. At the Virtual Summit, you’ll have access to 10 hours of high quality, NBCC-approved continuing education on the topic of Counseling For a Lifetime.

Plus, 100% of your registration fee will go directly to support the NBCC Foundation’s efforts to expand mental health resources to underserved and never-served communities around the world.

While you learn, you help others.

Join thousands of professionals and 10 industry experts… in the most innovative CE events of the year!

Over 16 days from Saturday 10th November until Sunday 25th November 2018, Mental Health Academy in collaboration with the NBCC Foundation is hosting the 2018 Bridging the Gap Virtual Summit.

The Summit will be delivered via 10 live webinar sessions during Saturday 10th November and Sunday 11th November, and will continue as an on-demand event (i.e. you can watch recorded versions of the live sessions) until Sunday 25th November.

It’s a truly unique event that you don’t want to miss.

An unprecedented body of knowledge

The Summit brings together an unprecedented body of knowledge… all available online and on-demand.

Let’s face it, ongoing learning can present a challenge. In an ideal world we’d all like to continually develop our knowledge and skills. But in reality, lifestyle restraints mean we can only achieve a fraction of the professional development we’d like to.

Geographic limitations, prohibitive costs and limited time can impede access to events, despite our best intentions.

The 2018 Bridging the Gap Virtual Summit is streamed direct to your computer. All you need is an internet (preferably broadband) connected device with speakers to access the highest-quality CE training available anywhere.

And if you can’t attend the event in real-time (we understand you have a busy schedule), you can access ALL the session content for a full 14 days (12-25 November) after the event, at your convenience.

All proceeds from the 2018 Bridging the Gap Virtual Summit go to the NBCC Foundation. Every single cent that’s paid to attend or sponsor the Summit, without any deductions, goes directly to helping underprivileged communities.

With your help, together we can raise over $50,000.00.

Help us help those in need

When you register for the Summit you decide what you want to pay to attend, starting from just $25 (yes, that’s to access the entire event).

There are no other fees or charges to attend and every cent of your registration fee goes directly to charity.

We believe that with your help the Summit can raise over $50,000.00 and help people across the world lead a happier, safer and more fulfilled life.

Raising $50,000.00 is an audacious goal. No doubt about it.

We need your support and that of industry professionals across the country if we are to reach our target. We can’t do it alone, we need your involvement.

Your support will be highly rewarded

So what do you get for your registration fee?

With costs escalating in the last few years, your CE training dollar doesn’t go far these days. But at the Summit you’ll access 10 hours of the highest quality continuing education for the price that you decide.
