New Jersey S 3061 - Counseling Compact
The New Jersey legislature has introduced a Counseling Compact bill (S 3061) and legislators need to hear from stakeholders who support the compact! 

Please advocate for increased access to mental health services by sharing with your legislators that as of June 2023, 28 states (Compact Map) have passed legislation to join the compact. The first compact commission meeting was on October 25-26, 2022. You can find more information, including up-coming meeting dates, here if you would like to attend any commission or committee meeting. All commission meetings are open to the public. 

The Counseling Compact will:

  • expand the mobility of the counseling workforce
  • enable counselors to serve clients who are increasingly engaged in multi-state employment and education
  • facilitate efficient licensure processes for military-connected families
  • ensure that proper regulatory processes necessary for the protection of the public are maintained and completed


The counseling compact is more important now than ever before! The global pandemic has dramatically expanded the need for telehealth services. Due to significant shifts in client mobility, including opportunities for remote work and education, cross-state movement and engagement has increased. This further highlights the need for counselors to have the privilege to practice in multiple states and New Jersey's citizens will be well-served by enacting S 3061.

Visit the New Jersey Legislature for up-to-date bill information. We urge you to contact your legislators to request support of this bill.
