Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association
You are here
The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (PRA) is proud of its chapters and affiliates in over 25 states. Each chapter promotes and supports the purposes and core values of PRA. As a PRA member, you are automatically a member of your state’s chapter.
A chapter provides increased opportunities for member participation within PRA. Separately or in concert with broader association efforts, each chapter provides members with educational opportunity, advocates in the public policy arena, and promotes the development of leadership within the field of psychiatric rehabilitation.

PRA envisions a world in which individuals with mental illness recover to achieve successful and satisfying lives in the working, learning, and social environments of their choice. To do this, we need the support of each state in the nation. In order to establish guidelines for the practices of psychiatric rehabilitation, our goal is to incorporate the Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) credential in each state. Currently, the certification is recognized in 16 states.
Now is your chance to make a difference! If there is not a chapter in your state, contact PRA for information on how you can establish a chapter. Please contact Casey Goldberg, Chief Operating Officer at 703-442-2078.
