A cover letter for a mental health counselor position can boost your candidacy. Keeping the sensitive nature of the position in mind and the fact that this position is required to interact with people in need of mental health care, a cover letter for the same must be written very tactfully.
Ideally, a cover letter begins with a brief introductory paragraph of introduction, relating the candidate to the position being targeted. This paragraph is conventionally followed by the main body, which is devoted to convincing the employer why the candidate is ideal for the job. The last paragraph is the closing.
Following is a sample cover letter for a mental health counselor position.
