Chapters and Affiliates

You are here

PRA Chapters and Affiliates promote and support the mission and values of PRA, and provide members with increased opportunities within their states.  Whether separately, or in concert with PRA, our chapters provide members with educational opportunities, local public policy advocates, and local leadership development within the psychiatric rehabilitation field.  As a PRA member, you are automatically a member of your state’s chapter, if one is in place.

In order to establish a world where individuals with mental illness achieve successful and satisfying lives, PRA relies on a broad network of Chapters and Affiliates.  Our goal is to have chapters or affiliates in all 50 states (and beyond!) to advocate to establish guidelines recognizing and incorporating the Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) and Certified Child and Family Resiliency Practitioner (CFRP) credentials, and advance psychiatric rehabilitation principles of self-directed, self-managed care that is state-of-the-art, and universally available to those who seek it.
