Federal advocacy typically seeks legislators' support for issues such as Medicare reimbursement rates, increase in funding for Graduate Psychology Education and Minority Fellowship Programs, and the inclusion of Psychologists in the Medicare physician definition.  More information on federal advocacy for psychology can be found on the MPA Federal Advocacy page.

The American Psychological Association (APA) holds an annual Practice Leadership Conference designed to give state leaders in psychology additional tools and resources to advocate for important issues.

Get involved in advocacy efforts with APA by joining APA's Psychology Advocacy Network to receive weekly updates on the latest legislative issues impacting psychology on Capitol Hill.
