Mental Health Bill Signing
WPS Member on "The Today Show"!


With the assistance of the APA Office of Communications and Public Affairs, we are exploring the WPS membership interest in participating in a training session for interacting with members of the media. This training would help us to reach out to members of the media to encourage appropriate commentary about psychiatric issues of community interest and importance. The training would likely occur on a future Saturday or Sunday yet to be determined. If you have interest in attending such a session, please email WPS Public Affairs Representative Charles Kaelber, providing your contact information, and any topics of special interest or expertise you have.
