May 15, 2020 - Dear LEMIT participants, Out of an abundance of caution and concern for safety, LEMIT is suspending the delivery of in-person training for the remainder of the summer, through August 31st. LEMIT staff, following the directives of SHSU, are working remotely. However, our staff and faculty continue to schedule training, respond to inquiries, and successfully complete online training. Our LEMIT team has been given the green light to continue courses in the fall, so we are making plans now to reschedule and alternately deliver all sessions, and are hopeful that we will be able to do so in a manner conducive to your schedule as well. To keep you informed regarding the latest developments, please watch for emails, and updates to the LEMIT website. Additionally, we will continue to provide updates related to COVID-19 at

Stay safe and thank you for your service to your communities,

Rita J. Watkins, Ed.D., LPC-S
Executive Director
