Meet Our Team
Our staff is dedicated to eliminating inequities in mental health treatment and training through APF’s generous scholarships and high-quality programming.
Access Psychology Foundation board members are fiduciaries who steer the organization toward a sustainable future by adopting sound ethical and legal, governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the Foundation has adequate resources to advance its mission.
Members of the APF Board of Directors embrace our mission to overcome behavioral health disparities that exist among historically underrepresented populations by increasing access to evidence-based prevention, treatment, training and education. Each board member chairs or co-chairs at least one APF committee and provides expertise and guidance related to various foundation functions, including: programs, finance, development, audit, marketing and communications, nominations and governance, and strategic planning.
