How Can YOU Make an Impact? A Day for Psychology is an opportunity for psychologists and those interested in mental health to lend their support to the Iowa Psychological Association by making a donation to the Iowa Psychological Foundation. This annual giving campaign presents a great opportunity for psychologists and mental health advocates across Iowa to come together to advance the profession of psychology throughout our State.

The IPA Office is in constant need of upholding its mission through public education and outreach, continuing education and advocacy. This year we plan to use donated funds for activities such as RxP training, a speaker for a cultural competency retreat and ECP scholarships.
