Do you need support and direction with finding your way as a mental health clinician? Even if you already have a supervisor, a mentor can still provide alternative support and guidance.

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a relationship focusing on supporting the clinical development of the mentee.

A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.
— Zig Ziglar

Some examples of such development may include:

  • Guidance for your career path

  • Identifying professional development resources

  • Connecting with community-based resources

  • Support to focus on career goals and/or achieve objectives

  • Sharing growth experiences as a mental health professional

  • Building your self confidence

A quick reminder that mentoring does NOT:

  • Tell you how to make decisions

  • Replace clinical supervision

  • Replace personal therapy through counseling services

  • Take responsibility for your clinical cases or practice 

The Mentor–Mentee Relationship:

This relationship is built upon a partnership between the mentor and mentee. Both the mentor and the mentee are required to invest time, energy, and thought in order to reap any benefits.

Meetings will be planned, structured, and geared towards objectives. Types of communication and frequency of meetings may vary based on the mentee’s needs and are subject to agreement between both the mentor and mentee. Examples of communication may include email, phone calls, video calls, and/or in-person meetings.
