APA Fights for Mental Health Support
The American Psychological Association (APA) made a statement voicing its concern about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. It says the proposed replacement bill “would reduce mental health and substance use coverage for millions of Americans enrolled in Medicaid and contribute to the loss of coverage for millions more individuals.”
The APA also made a statement in support of the March for Science on April 22, 2017, and it became an official partner of the march. “We wholeheartedly support the aims of this march, which align with APA’s mission to advance the creation, communication and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people’s lives,” says Howard Kurtzman, the APA’s acting executive director for science. “We encourage all psychologists, psychology students and their allies to join this broad, nonpartisan effort to support scientific research and the use of scientific evidence for the public good.”
