The Board of Mental Health Coaching (BMHC) is charged with becoming financially self-sufficient, as well as keeping costs for credential holders as low as possible. The BMHC must therefore rely on credentialing fees to cover its operating, consulting, research, and advocacy/defense missions. Even so, the following fees are substantially less than comparable national certification groups. Annual fees for both BMHC and AACC membership are less than the cost of most other professional association fees without a national credential.

The goal of the BMHC is to create a truly comprehensive Christian Care network that integrates the entire continuum of counseling services and ministries, from professional practitioners to those individuals who provide lay helping such as support group resources, mentoring, mediation, and coaching.
