The direction of the BPA is dictated by the growth of our organization and the present dilemmas facing African Americans. The initial and continuing philosophy is to effect change in American psychiatry for the betterment of African Americans and the country as a whole.
To improve the treatment, care, and rehabilitation of persons affected with mental disorders, developmental and emotional disabilities.
To develop and implement programs that work to eliminate racial, ethnic, religious, and gender bias and discrimination.
To establish and support standards in psychiatric practice, service, and facilities.
To promote research and professional education in those areas of psychiatry.
If there are any places online or in publications that BPA is featured, I would like to add that here.
Save the date for our upcoming 2024 Spring BPA Conference behing held in Los Angeles, California on March 21st – 24th! Join us as we explore the nexus of community and mental health: space, place, and identity.
