The written (mail or email) comment period to the NC Psychology Board is from
September 4, 2019 to November 4, 2019
The in-person comment period will be in Greensboro, NC, on the morning of September 27, 2019.
- All attendees to the in-person public comment period must be prepared to provide a verbal statement.
- The purpose of the comment period is to provide comments (there is no accommodation for listeners, spectators, and/or an audience).
- Your statement does not need to be long, but please focus on providing something helpful that promotes LPA independence and/or a hardship you have personally endured as a direct result of the restriction career-long supervision places on LPAs.
There is still a significant need of more funds and we ask that you to send more donations and encourage others to do so and/or help with fundraising efforts. Individuals can join NCAPP, renew their membership, and/or make donations here: https://ncapp.org/
Please feel free to invite your trusted supervisors and LPs, LPAs, and others to participate in submitting a letter. There is power in numbers, and LPAs have never been this close to having parity with other Master’s level practitioners in the field of mental health. This is a true victory for not only LPAs but also the citizenry of NC.
