Who is the LPMA
As a district Branch of the American Psychiatric Association, the LPMA strives to promote mental health, support quality treatment of psychiatric disorders, and support the professional agenda and standards of our national organization.
The mission of the Louisiana Psychiatric Medical Association, a district branch of the American Psychiatric Association, is to:
- promote mental health
- support quality treatment of psychiatric disorders
- support the professional agenda and standards of our national organization
We pursue these goals through educating our members, our colleagues, our patients, our community and our policy makers regarding the symptoms, treatment, and prevention of mental illness.
We encourage interaction and networking within our membership.
Further, we foster the formation of coalitions and alliances among individuals and groups concerned about improving mental health care.
