The objectives of the Alaska Psychiatric Association are to continuously improve the ability of its members to provide quality psychiatric services to individuals and families in need. The Association also strives to promote the welfare of all those with mental illness and to foster the medically based principles of psychiatry.

The Association, in collaboration with the American Psychiatric Association, is committed to:

  • Improving the treatment, rehabilitation, and care of the mentally ill, the intellectually disabled, and the emotionally disturbed;
  • Promoting research, professional education in psychiatry and allied fields and the prevention of psychiatric disability;
  • Advancing the standards of all psychiatric services and facilities;
  • Fostering the cooperation of all who are concerned with the medical, psychological, social and legal aspects of mental health and illness; 
  • Making psychiatric knowledge available to other practitioners of medicine, to scientists in other fields of knowledge, and to the public; and
  • Promoting the best interests of patients and those actually or potentially making use of mental health services.

The Alaska Psychiatric Association designates representatives serving as members of these national networks and provides supportive activities in the areas of legislative advocacy, public information and education.

Why Join the APA?

When you join the American Psychiatric Association (APA), you become part of a 35,000 member organization of physicians who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illnesses. For over 160 years, the APA has provided the tools and resources to nurture and preserve the profession. The APA unites psychiatrists from around the world and brings together practice, education, and research at all levels. As the largest psychiatric membership organization in the world, we are dedicated to promoting the highest quality care for patients, providing continuing education and research into mental illnesses, and advocating for psychiatrists and their profession.

With 76 district branches and state associations throughout the United States and Canada, your local APA District Branch/State Association provides the necessary contacts you need to remain a leader in psychiatry. Your APA District Branch may offer professional development opportunities, networking and continuing educational programs, newsletters, and even state-level lobbying efforts for the advancement of psychiatry. The APA and the District Branches/State Associations have a dual membership requirement.

    Group Registrations
    Group registration can be coordinated by a single payer through our online registration and payment gateway, allowing an agent to register one or more applicants and make a single payment.  If a third party or agency is paying for your registration by credit card, they will need to register themselves first as a Non-Attending Group Coordinator, as our system requires that all credit card payments be charged to the first registrant.  No fee will be charged for a coordinator's registration (as it is for billing purposes only) and they will not be listed on our attendance roster.  Additional registrants may be added after the Non-Attending Group Coordinator's information.
