What is the vocational outlook for counselors?

The need for licensed professional counselors is enormous.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics projected a 22 percent increase in mental health counselor employment between 2018-2028.  This projection is related to the need for counseling services for under-served populations, the high percentage of persons with any mental illness that did not receive treatment and the increasing recognition that the use of counseling services for drug offenders is more effective than incarceration.
