It happens that I start in on an idea and think I've done my research. Only to get whacked in the head about a question I did not ask. Like how to find the specific vendor on a state website.
For example, I start to think about the episode and then a thought came into my head. 
"How are they supposed to do that?" 
And because I'm hardheaded and I don't listen to the spirits from up on high, I respond that they should go to their mental health or behavioral health board in their state. 
Then the spirits from up on high say, "you better double check that." 
I'm hard-headed, but I'm not stupid.
 I got humbled right quick. There are some states to provide mental health services and resources to the public. Every nook and cranny of their website has resources and plain English explanations. There are other states that work as a conduit between public and private resources.
But when it comes to seeking licensing info, it may not be a state mental health site you need to be.
Some of the states have their licensing information in an entirely different site. But there are ways to find and obtain the information.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
