PI-GRO believes that health care reform provides a critical opportunity to ensure that our nation has the appropriate infrastructure to meet the mental and behavioral health needs of individuals across the lifespan. 

PI-GRO worked diligently over the last several months, in collaboration with other APA Directorates, to develop important legislative resources that articulate and reflect APA’s policy recommendations on this critical national issue.  In addition to the APA Health Care Reform Priorities, PI-GRO took the lead in developing additional Health Care Reform materials on Integrated Health Care; Disease Prevention, Health Promotion, and Wellness; and Disparities in Mental Health Status and Mental Health Care.  Furthermore, PI-GRO worked closely with the Education Government Relations Office in developing resources regarding priorities impacting Health Professions Training and Education.
