Advocating for Mental Health Occupational Therapy
We will work at the state, national, and international levels to increase the understanding and availability of mental health OT services in order to benefit our clients and their communities.
We will accomplish this through:
Governmental, legislative, and parliamentary advocacy to support insurance reimbursement for mental health OT services
Advocating for parity in status and authority with other mental health service providers
Educating the public, government, and other professionals about our value to the mental health community
Advocacy to expand our reach and roles to increase our role in community and out-patient services and other diverse contexts
