The National Latina/o Psychological Association (NLPA) is a national organization of mental health professionals and students whose objective is to generate and advance psychological knowledge and foster its effective application for the benefit of the Hispanic/Latino population.
NLPA roots go back as far as the 1970s, but the organization formally reorganized in 2002 and incorporated in Arizona, where its first national conference was held. Many of its professional and student members work in the cities, communities and universities across the state.
NLPA’s membership represents a rich diversity of national background, ethnic and cultural origin and political ideology. NLPA does not presume to speak for all Latino psychologists or psychologists interested in Latino psychology. However, its members’ goal is to see a physical and psychological environment for Latinos in the US reflect the ideals of respect for mental health, dignity, and human and civil rights.
