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.
