Diversity Public Statement 6/22/2020
As a professional organization focused on the highest standards of healthcare, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) stands against all forms of discrimination and violence based on intolerance toward individuals of difference and the communities to which they belong. The ABPP Board of Trustees joins the national movement to end endemic racism and racially motivated violence.
We recognize the mental health impact of discrimination, income disparities, poverty, and lack of access to quality healthcare that disproportionately affect persons of color. Given the events of the past few months, including responses to COVID-19 and, separately, the protests against social injustice in the United States and around the world, ABPP stands committed to advocacy toward a better understanding of the trauma of violence, intolerance, and healthcare inequities.
