California Psychiatrists Political Action Committee

Another important way of getting involved is by sending money to the California Psychiatrists Political Action Committee (CPPAC).  Please know that OCPS has forwarded a contribution for 2022 on behalf of our members. If you are so inclined, you can also send an individual contribution.

The California Psychiatrists PAC is a vital part of the efforts of our organization to ensure the regular engagement with our state representatives. Your ongoing contributions allow us to support persons committed to both the health of our patients and the practice of psychiatry.

This year many familiar challenges await us. Renewed challenges to mental health parity jeopardize our efforts to bring equality to mental health patients and psychiatrists. The strain the coronavirus pandemic has brought our patients, fellow physicians and our practices is unprecedented. We have been there to meet the need, but we need the appropriate support to also be able to care for ourselves.

With all the attention on mental healthcare, this is also an exciting time for change. We have a chance to be an active force in shaping the future of healthcare and psychiatry in the state of California. As healthcare reform is a reality, supporting our PAC allows CSAP to have a positive impact as these policies are formulated and revised. So, let’s sustain the momentum we have gained and get back to work! Your investment in the PAC is an investment in the future of psychiatry!

PAC funds are used for:

  • campaign contributions to qualified political candidates and office holders.
  • educating legislators and the public on scope of practice, patient safety and quality of care issues.

These funds augment and enhance CSAP lobbying efforts and enable legal action on these issues. Contributions are voluntary and not tax-deductible.
