Board of Behavioral Sciences Work Setting Survey

The Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) is conducting a survey of BBS registrants and licensees, as well as behavioral health agency directors. This survey is voluntary and anonymous. The purpose of the survey is:
1. To gather information about different types of work settings in which clinical services (assessment, diagnosis and/or treatment) are provided; and,

2. To gather the information about the clinical services provided to consumers by unlicensed or unregistered staff working in “exempt” settings.
An “exempt” setting is currently defined in law as a governmental entity, a school, or an entity that is both nonprofit and charitable (a 501c3). Such settings are permitted under BBS law to provide clinical services (assessment, diagnosis and/or treatment) through unlicensed and unregistered staff members, even if that staff member is not pursuing licensure as a mental health professional.

All BBS registrants, licensees and agency directors are encouraged to complete the survey, regardless of work setting type.
