CPA's Resident Forum
What happens inside the State Capitol has significant impact on your practice as a psychiatrist and, indeed, on the delivery of mental healthcare throughout California. Understanding the process of managing legislation that promises (or threatens) our ability to serve all Californians can take years of experience and direct involvement - time that you, as resident's, often do not have.
This password-protected Resident's Forum on CPA's website is dedicated to paving the way for your future involvement as advocates for sound mental health policy - a primer to help you become educated about policy and involved as advocates your careers progress. We know that your voices and input are critically important as we pursue the passage of beneficial legislation and oppose bills that restrict access to mental healthcare or threaten your practice of psychiatry. We need your input, want your involvement and anticipate your active participation as future drivers of mental health policies for our members and for all Californians.
