The NJPA works collaboratively with the APA to help members efficiently communicate with elected officials and make their voices heard in Congress and the state legislature. Psychiatrists today are the clear experts on the mental health effects of some of today’s most prominent public health crises: gun violence, the opioid use epidemic, suicide, depression, and the immigration crisis, just to name a few. On behalf of patients, their families and the profession of psychiatry, APA and NJPA members need to make their voices heard as experts and constituents. Access the APA Advocacy Action Center to learn how to effectively communicate with elected officials and receive timely legislative alerts.
