The Illinois Psychological Association (IPA) is the largest professional association of psychologists in Illinois. IPA works to advance the science and profession of psychology and to promote human welfare through mental health access, treatment, and information.

IPA provides high-quality educational opportunities to keep our members abreast of the latest science-based treatment information and changes to the healthcare system. IPA advocates in Springfield and in Washington, D.C., for psychologists and for a mental health system that best serves psychologists’ patients.

IPA members are committed to providing mental health care in times of crisis, providing Red Cross services after natural and manmade disasters. IPA is proud of the role it plays in these efforts by providing a network for interested psychologists.
