Counseling Bill Signed into Law
WKRN Thursday April 28, 2016

Governor Bill Haslam signed the controversial counseling bill into law Wednesday.
The bill allows mental health therapists to turn patients away based on the counselors’ personal and strongly held principles.
Haslam there are two key provisions of the legislation that address the concerns he had about clients not receiving care.
The governor said the bill clearly states that it ‘shall not apply to a counselor or therapist when an individual seeking or undergoing counseling is in imminent danger of harming themselves or others.
He said the substance of the bill doesn’t address a group, issue or belief system but rather “allows counselors to refer a client to another counselor when the goals or behaviors would violate a sincerely held principle.”
Haslam, he says, believes it is “reasonable” to allow counselors to determine if and when someone would be better served by another counselor.
The American Counseling Association (ACA), scheduled to hold their convention in Nashville next year, says the bill is in direct violation of its Code of Ethics
There is no word on whether or not the ACA will continue to hold their 2017 convention in Nashville. If they choose to move it, Nashville stands to lose upwards of $2.5 million in visitor spending.
