The Maine Psychological Association (MePA) is a non-profit association which represents the 600+ psychologists and psychological examiners in Maine. Our mission is to advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare. Our membership consists of practicing psychologists, academicians, students, retirees, associates and affiliates. For consumers, the Maine Psychological Association, at no charge, offers assistance with locating psychologists around the state for referral. Our on-line database, available to all, can be used to search for a psychologist.
For psychologists and psychological examiners, MePA offers advocacy on behalf of psychologists in the legislature and with state agencies, continuing education workshops, at home continuing education, and a newsletter, The Maine Psychologist. We also provide no-cost ethics consultations for members with the MePA Ethics Committee, and act as a clearinghouse on laws, regulations, managed care, and other topics affecting the practice of psychology. Members also have exclusive access to a “Members Only” listserv, where current issues are discussed and pertinent information is shared.
If you are a psychologist or psychological examiner, living or working in Maine, please consider joining your state association. You can complete and submit an application form on line.
Current members, please log in to take advantage of all this site has to offer. We have an e-mail option: as a member you may sign up for an e-mail account at MePA.org. Find the sign-up form on the right just after you log in.
