Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
The Licensing of Psychologists in the US and Canada is handled by the States/Provinces and oversees application and licensing/certification.
In general, the only issues that would preclude someone from becoming would be related being convicted of Crimes of Moral Turpitude or Felonies all which would scrutinized and a final determination made by the Licensing Board.
In Terms of mental health- preclusions could result if someone had a Mental Disorder that resulted in them being incompetent to practice Psychology.
There are many Licensed Psychologist who have physical and mental disabilities such as ADD
, Depression , Anxiety
. These are viewed as any other illness and as long as none of these interfere with a person to carry out the practical and legal responsibilities associated with being a Psychologist- they would NOT be precluded from licensure or certification.
Specific information on Licensing in Canada can be found here:
IF you have more specific concerns about yourself or someone else and care to share the issues with me, I
would be happy to respond.
Otherwise, I wish you the very best.
Kind Regards, Bill
