    Hello MAMFT!

    It is bittersweet that I get to say goodbye to my role as Pre-Clinical Representative! It has been a wonderful 4 years serving the folks who are experiencing this very important part of the journey as MFTs. I have seen so many committee members, peers, and dear friends transition through the journey from graduate school to full licensure. And what a journey that is! Thank you to everyone who has come to a gathering, event, or even just emailed to express interest in the Pre-Clinical happenings! I, too, found these gatherings and events helpful as I progressed through my licensure journey that culminated this past September when I achieved my LMFT licensure. I did not quite know what I signed up for when I put my hat in the ring for the Pre-Clinical Rep role back in 2014, but I am sure glad that I did!

    Melissa Mrozek, MA, LAMFT, LADC has been appointed to complete the rest of my term for the next 2 years. She will make the role and committee her own and continue to further the interests of Pre-Clinical MFT folks in Minnesota. She can be reached at preclinical@mamft.net if you are interested in being involved or have ideas!

    I have resigned from this role in order to step into my new appointment as the Legislative Co-Chair alongside Erin Pash. Anyone who knows me is aware that I am passionate about the impact of legislation on our everyday lives and the lives of our clients, especially those most vulnerable to the impacts. I have been interested in this role for many years and this is the perfect time to step into it. I look forward to serving MAMFT, our clients, and ultimately everyone in the state Minnesota in this new role.

    Your (previous) Pre-Clinical Representative,

    Tamara L. Statz, MA, LMFT
    MAMFT Legislative Co-Chair

    We want to share with you an important message from AAMFT Family TEAM:

    “Bipartisan legislation that would include licensed marriage and family therapists, as well as licensed mental health counselors, as Medicare eligible providers has just been introduced in both the US House of Representatives and US Senate. The Mental Health Access Improvement Act of 2019, introduced in the House as H.R. 945 by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Rep. John Katko (R-NY) and in the Senate as S. 286 by Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), would add MFTs and MHCs as independent Medicare Part B practitioners.

    Now MFTs must encourage their Members of Congress to support MFTs and cosponsor H.R. 945 and S. 286. A strong showing of support increases the likelihood that the legislation will continue through the legislative process to become law. Tell Congress today to add MFTs in Medicare!”
