Mental Health Practice Act Sunset Signed into Law

 Posted: July 15, 2020

On Tuesday, the 2020 Mental Health Practice Act was signed into law! A copy of the signed act is available here.

CPA is happy to share a number of our successes through this Sunset process:

- Maintained our Continuing Professional Development Program (for Psychologists) and were not required to move into the Continuing Competency Program utilized by some of the master’s level mental health practitioners.

- Advocated to cease new registrants into the Registered Psychotherapists database. Current Registered Psychotherapists will be allowed to continue practicing psychotherapy. However, they will have to change their name back to Unlicensed Psychotherapists and no new Unlicensed Psychotherapists will be allowed to enroll in the database and practice psychotherapy without a license or certification in Colorado.

- Added a professional background check requirement so that CPA can participate in PSYPACT (Psychological Interjurisdictional Compact) as is required.

- Clarified statutory language that licensees are not paying for referrals when the renumeration was for services provided including marketing, office space, administrative, consultative, etc.

- Clarified that licensees may (but are not required to) form professional service corporations (PSC/PLLC) and may create LLCs for their businesses.


This multiple year process required significant investment from many CPA members, our Capstone lobbyist team, our mental health partners, and many other stakeholders to move the bill across the finish line. We owe special thank you’s to our tremendous bill sponsors including Rep. Dafna Michaelson-Jenet, Rep. Lois Landgraf, Sen. Faith Winter, and Sen. Jack Tate and the amazing work of our lobbyist team at the Capstone Group including the phenomenal Jeannie Vanderburg who steered us successfully through this process. Also special thanks to the active work of the Sunset Task Force including Julie Jacobs, Rick Ginsberg, Angela Green, Erin Baurle, and Athena Baca-Chieza.


Stay tuned for information regarding an upcoming webinar to guide psychologists through the changes to the Mental Health Practice Act.

Chair of Mental Health Sunset Task Force and Colorado APA Council Representative
