The Haitian American Psychiatric Association (HAPA) is committed to providing education regarding quality mental health care to haitians living in the US and Haiti. HAPA members are adult psychiatrists, child and adolescents psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licenced practical nurses, and social workers.
We partner with Rebati Sante Mental and the Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad (AMHE) in leading educational missions in Haiti.
We established a weekly radio program during which we discuss various mental health topics: description of major mental illnesses with their prognosis and treatment outcomes. We offer advice on how to access services.
We conduct local health fairs in ethnically diverse communities to provide resources. We also encourage participants to seek help if needed.
We conduct presentations on updates in psychiatry for our members.
We offer scholarships to support minority students in pursuing their future career.
We hold yearly fundraising galas to support our goals.
