A 12-year-old Models Advocacy

Sometimes, psychologists do not recognize the many ways in which we can advocate for our patients.  In this case, a 12-year-old started a petition for the Boston Red Sox to become involved in an anti-bullying, anti-suicide video for the project "It Gets Better."

In the recent past, psychologists won a major victory for access to psychological services. We achieved mental health parity, but there is much work to do.

Join with APA and your state psychological organization.  No one else will advocate for psychology and our patients.  It is up to you to join, volunteer, and participate in advocacy for the profession and our patients. If a 12-year-old can do it, then certainly others can.
