Academy of Clinical Specialists – Council of Psychiatric Pharmacists

 You do not need to seek out the statistics to know that behavioral health, both locally and nationally, is a growing concern.  We could say that it has always been a problem but thankfully it is getting more attention and is becoming less of a stigma to have a mental health issue.  But there is always more work to be done!  The world of pharmacy has a keen interest to be involved and knowledgeable about mental health.  Lobbying our roles as healthcare team members and fighting for life saving legislation can evolve the profession and give a voice to the families and those suffering from mental illnesses.   

Membership to the Academy is open to any pharmacist or pharmacy technicians that want to shout from the rooftops about mental health.   Anyone who considers themselves an advocate for consumers, someone who wants to learn about the growing field of treatment in this arena, and wants to continue to destroy the stigma of mental health are perfect for this Academy!

 The benefits of the Academy of Specialty Psychiatric Pharmacists include:

  • Networking and collaborating with other psychiatric pharmacists across the state of Colorado.
  • Be the first to know about our annual Psychiatric Symposium held at the University of Colorado.
  • Electing one member of the Academy to serve on the board of directors of CPS, being the liaison leadership voice for the group.
  • Getting all the profits of a CPS membership using the added bonus of connecting with fellow colleagues in your area of interest, without any increased cost!
