Advocacy

The New Jersey Psychological Association (NJPA) is committed to strengthening our political outreach and advocating for the interests of New Jersey psychologists and mental health issues that are important to the public. NJPA is instrumental in maintaining standards of psychological practice in New Jersey, protecting patients’ rights, and supporting public policy. We monitor state rules and laws that regulate the profession, and maintain a liaison with the NJ Board of Psychological Examiners to stay informed about any changes that may affect our members. As an affiliate of the American Psychological Association, NJPA is involved in federal advocacy initiatives and regularly lobbies for federal issues that affect the science and profession of psychology.
