Learn. Connect with others. Make an impact.

BAPA organizes a variety of social, professional, and community events for BAPA members and the public to learn and grow professionally, connect with other mental health professionals, and serve our community.  Here are some of the events we typically offer:

  • Social & Networking Events: Member Happy Hours and Coffees, Annual Member Picnic, Annual Member Holiday Party, Student events, and New Member gatherings.
  • Advocacy Opportunities: Opportunities to meet with local, state and national legislators to stay informed, influence, and advocate on mental health issues.
  • Community Events: Opportunities to participate as a group and individually in community walks and parades, host resource booths, and provide talks with local organizations. Some organizations we have worked with include NAMI, Star Vista, SF Pride Parade, SMC Pride Parade, local libraries, graduate psychology schools, and various other mental health organizations.
