IPA IN THE ROTUNDA  

                
Ready to answer questions for state legislators (left to right) Susan Farber, PhD, IPA's Federal Advocacy Coordinator and RxP Campaign Chair; Lyn McArthur, PhD, IPA's State Advocacy Coordinator.  

Several IPA members helped the Advocacy Committee with its first-ever psychology day at the state capitol.  While serving breakfast to legislators and staff, IPA members had friendly discussions with legislators on the proposed licensure rules related to prescription privileges and mental health services in Idaho. 

Prepared to discuss mental health in Idaho, Amy Walters, PhD, IPA's Public Education Campaign Chair.

Legislators were encouraged to call the IPA Office to "Pick Our Brains" if they have other mental-health-related questions during this session.  Thanks to Kris Ellis, IPA's lobbyist, who helped guide us through the event, and to the following members who helped at the capitol:  Susan Martin, Kate Michaud, Eric Malm, Ray Booth, Winslow Gerrish, Amy Walters, Susan Farber, Kendra Westerhaus (& her husband Casey who helped with move-out) and Lyn McArthur.  They were a dedicated team who represented Idaho's psychologists extremely well.
