Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1949) famously said, "We are all much more simply human than otherwise."
But 70 years later, the stigma of mental health still exists...

Serious mental illness (SMI) does not discriminate. People from all cultures, races, and communities can experience mental health crises, and psychologists need the skills to respond effectively. The 2019 MPA
Annual Conference, a collaboration between MPA and the MA Department of Mental Health, will provide everyday psychologists with evidence-based skills and resources to address the needs of patients with SMI. 
Join your colleagues and friends to update your knowledge, break down the stigma of SMI and move toward greater understanding and acceptance.

**Registration will open in early September**

Student Call for Posters for MPA Annual Conference:

The MPA Training Committee welcomes original research or research proposal posters from masters and doctoral students on any topic in psychology for presentation at MPA's Annual Conference. We invite you to submit a broad range of research methodologies and theoretical frameworks. We do not accept posters that consist of literature reviews alone. Acceptances will be based on clarity of presentation, soundness of research and/or theory, and significance to psychology. 
Students must be currently enrolled in a masters or doctoral program in psychology; their program, practicum, or internship must be located in Massachusetts. We strongly encourage sponsorship by a faculty member who is a member of MPA, and ask the faculty sponsor to attend the MPA annual meeting along with the student.  
Please submit a 250-word abstract in WORD format describing your work through the following link:  MPA Student Posters
Proposals must be received by Friday, September 20,2019.  Members of the MPA Training Committee will be reviewing the proposals. Students will be notified by October 11th of their submission outcome. This is a great opportunity to present your work in a collegial environment of other students and a broad range of Massachusetts psychologists.
** Please note that each of the students listed as authors on the proposals must register for the MPA Annual Conference (at the reduced student rate).
