KPA Awarded Grant
KPA thanks APA Services for awarding the Kansas Psychological Association a Small State Operational Grant for fiscal year 2022.
APA Services is providing $250,000 for Small State Operational Grants in 2022 to small state psychological associations to support the professional needs of psychologists. These grants are administered by the APA Practice Directorate and the Committee for State Leaders (CSL). We received 23 applications requesting a total greater than the amount of funds available. CSL weighed important factors such as each state’s grant history and financial status to ensure that funding was distributed fairly.

Looking for a Therapist?
Practicing psychologists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems. After years of graduate school and supervised training, they become licensed by their states to provide a number of services, including evaluations and psychotherapy. Psychologists help by using a variety of techniques based on the best available research and consider someone's unique values, characteristics, goals and circumstances.
The Kansas Psychological Association provides a searchable list of KPA members who are licensed to practice by the State of Kansas. Listings contained in this section are based on information given by the providers.
Diversity Holiday Calendar
Did you know that April is diversity month? It was officially designated as diversity month in 2004, and it strives to help people gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of each other and their differences. To celebrate April diversity celebrations, consider new ways you can integrate diversity into your life.
4/2: World Autism Awareness Day- In 2022, we’ll celebrate the 15th annual World Autism Awareness Day. The goal of this April diversity topic is to recognize people with autism and improve their lives both fully and meaningfully.
4/2: Ramadan- Our April diversity calendar includes Islam’s most sacred month, which starts April 2. During this month, practicing Muslims will observe a strict fast from dawn to dusk. This “fast” includes abstaining from eating, drinking, chewing gum, smoking cigarettes, and engaging in sexual activity. You can understand the practice of Ramadan better by trying this for a day.
4/15: Passover- April multicultural holidays include Passover, a Jewish holiday that commemorates the Biblical story of Exodus. Exodus is when God freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Its main event is the seder, which is a festive meal where the Book of Exodus and related writings are recited in a set order.
4/17: Easter- Easter is the most significant Christian holy day that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus following his death. If you’re not Christian but want to celebrate this holiday in 2022, learn about the resurrection as told in the Bible, and have an Easter brunch with friends and family.
4/22: Earth Day- April diversity days include Earth Day, established in 1970 as an international day of celebration for the modern environmental movement, which 192 countries celebrate.
