Access to psychological services is essential for all Ohioans to be healthy and productive. Psychologists treat depression, anxiety and drug addiction, chronic pain and acute stress.  Psychologists are the go-to professionals for diagnosis and assessment in complex multi-symptom and forensic cases. Join OPA, psychologists, and graduate students and Ohio policy makers for presentations and discussion about the value of psychological services. The morning programs will focus on policy issues in the Ohio legislature related to psychological  treatment.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn:

  • Effective models for treating opiate addiction in Ohio
  • Treatment programs proposed in the midterm budget
  • Pain management programs integrating behavioral and physical treatment

In addition, OPA’s Committee on Social Responsiblity is hosting a Mind/Body Health Fair for legislators, staff, the public and Legislative Day participants.  Psychologists and graduate students from around Ohio will staff the tables focused on how psychologists build a Healthy and Productive Ohio.
