Event Details

Our Mission

The Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) sees its mission and destiny as the liberation of the African Mind, empowerment of the African Character, and enlivement and illumination of the African Spirit.

Our History

The Association of Black Psychologists was founded in San Francisco in 1968 by a number of Black Psychologists from across the country. They united to actively address the serious problems facing Black Psychologists and the larger Black community. Guided by the principle of self determination, these psychologists set about building an institution through which they could address the long neglected needs of Black professionals. Their goal was to have a positive impact upon the mental health of the national Black community by means of planning, programs, services, training, and advocacy. Their objectives were:

·   To organize their skills and abilities to influence necessary change, and

·   To address themselves to significant social problems affecting the Black community
and other segments of the population whose needs society has not fulfilled.

The Association of Black Psychologists has grown from a handful of concerned professionals into an independent, autonomous organization of over 1400 members.

The Chicago Chapter ABPsi will host a fundraiser on June 29, 2013 to support programing to meet the above objectives. The incoming President will address her platform that empowers the voiceless to “Speak Your Mind.”  The Chicago Chapter’s  will host a variety of community forums and professional development workshops for the 2013-2014 year focused on promoting consciousness,  courageousness, and commitment to addressing issue impacting the mental health of Black people.
