Disability Mentoring Program Seeks Mentees

The American Psychological Association's Disability Mentoring Program is seeking mentees—psychology students with disabilities, disabled psychologists entering the field, and newly disabled psychologists—to participate in this beneficial program.

Our Disability Mentoring Program pairs mentees seeking advice, guidance and development with more experienced APA member psychologists. Mentors will be matched to mentees who share the same disability, identified area of assistance, and/or major field in psychology.

Mentoring is a powerful tool that can play a significant role in helping students and professionals with disabilities who face many unique issues and barriers. Through mentoring, mentees benefit from gaining broadened perspectives, development of particular strategies and attitudes, and networking contacts. Mentoring provides significant benefits to mentors as well.
