CMHC Reference Works
We have curated a separate guide of Reference works that may be helpful to CMHC students that contains dictionaries, encyclopedias, casebooks, and guides, available on our main site's eBook Resources guide. Click here to be taken to that page.

CMHC Online Reading Room
We have created an online reading room specifically for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling department! This reading room contains both articles and eBooks related to areas of study within the discipline of Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The reading room is meant to be browsed and explored to gain general knowledge and background on a topic, so it might provide some solid introductory resources to what you may be researching.

Purchased APA Collections
Every year the American Psychological Association releases an eBook package of counseling books that we have diligently purchased. The eBook packages in this collection range from 2017 to 2022. Recently, we also were able to purchase an eBook package released by the American Psychiatric Association, which is also included on this guide. While these are smaller collections of eBooks, they are all recent and may contain books on a subject you are researching.
