February is Psychology Month
Psychology Month is an annual national campaign to raise awareness of the role psychology plays in our lives and in our communities. The British Columbia Psychological Association would like to invite you to participate in our 2016 Psychology Month campaign.
We are planning a number of initiatives to disseminate information about the profession and science of psychology. BCPA is hosting a series of 10 free public talks on psychology. The list can be found at http://www.psychologists.bc.ca/blog/free-psychology-month-talks-february-2016-1 . Please be sure to drop by our booth at the Bottom Line Conference on workplace mental health on February 23 and 24. Additionally, we have arranged for displays at libraries throughout Metro Vancouver, and we will be working with other areas to display posters and brochures. We will also be sharing information with medical clinics, medical labs, victim services, hospitals, neighbourhood houses, and other community locations throughout British Columbia.

The BCPA encourages you to get involved this February in promoting psychology and mental health.
Ultimately, we hope to bring a greater awareness to mental health concerns, public access to treatment, and the important role psychology plays in the well-being of our communities. Together, let us help increase awareness of psychology and the contributions the profession makes to our health.
Come back and check our blog over the months of January and February for updates and additional information on Psychology Month.
