Community and State Hospitals
Welcome to the Community and State Hospital Section page. There are a number of common interests shared by members. These areas include psychological service delivery, research, program development, outcome evaluation, and systems management, within the context of varied public mental health settings. Individuals in this section often are employed in Community Mental Health Centers, Psychiatric Hospitals, and other public settings where persons with serious mental illness are treated. Members in this section may be interested and involved in the use of psychotropic medication. They also may be employed in rural and / or underserved areas and consequently find themselves involved in telemedicine. Some work to advocate for the practice of public service psychology by joining state psychological associations and building on the legislative successes of other states.
