Advocacy

Kentucky Psychiatric Medical Association advocates on behalf of our patients and our profession. It is vital that the voice of psychiatry be heard.


 


On February 7, 2018, physicians from across the state met with their respective Senators and Representatives to discuss public health issues, scope of practice, and access to care amongst other topics in Frankfort. The KPMA had a group of psychiatrists, including residents, that worked in conjunction with the Kentucky Medical Association to bring attention to various issues they face every day at work providing patient care.

In 2017, KPMA contracted with Mr. Gray to represent your interests with Kentucky’s policymakers.  He is passionate about the treatment of individuals with mental illness and that is one of the reasons why he wanted to represent the profession safeguarded by the KPMA.
