I support the petition.

Supervisees have complained of long wait times for responses from the licensure board.  They report minimal support along with complex details regarding board expectations.  Their experience discouages efforts to strive to meet licensure standards and, thereby, improve professional skills.  Ultimately, that negatively effects all mental health substance abuse professionals by lowering expectations and qualifications within our field.
