CAMFT is a non-profit association dedicated to the advancement and understanding of the profession of marriage and family therapists as both an art and a science, to maintaining high standards of professional ethics and qualifications, and to expanding the recognition and utilization of the profession.
CAMFT monitors and works cooperatively with the regulatory board (Board of Behavioral Sciences http://www.bbs.ca.gov/), the state legislature, and others. It is an advocate for consumers on mental health issues--sponsoring bills and getting laws passed to benefit the public, patients/consumers, the profession, and other mental health professionals.
As an independent, state professional organization, CAMFT is not affiliated with any other organization (such as AAMFT) other than 27 chartered chapters located throughout California.
