BENEFITING: NEW YORK ASSOCIATION OF BLACK PSYCHOLOGISTS INC
Greetings! I hope all is well. The New York Association of Black Psychologists is celebrating our 45th anniversary and we are excited to launch our end of year fundraising campaign to enable more African American students to pursue careers in psychology. Although, African Americans comprise 12% of the US population, only 5% of psychologists are of African descent. This disparity contributes to African Americans underutilizing mental health services, which may lead to greater mental health inequality. We seek to change that with our Scholarship Fund. We plan to give 3 scholarships this year to support the educational efforts of undergraduate or graduate students pursuing degrees in psychology or counseling. We thank you for your support.
