Disability Mentoring Program Seeks Mentors

The American Psychological Association's Disability Mentoring Program is seeking APA member psychologists to participate as mentors in this program intended to benefit students and professionals with disabilities. It is expected that mentees will receive emotional support and practical guidance in their academic or career pursuits, and will benefit from discussions that relay experience and feedback from a seasoned psychologist like you.

As mentors, you will be electronically matched to mentees who share the same disability, identified area of assistance, and/or major field in psychology.

Mentoring is a powerful tool that can play a significant role in helping students and professionals with disabilities who face many unique issues and barriers. Through mentoring, mentees benefit from gaining broadened perspectives, development of particular strategies and attitudes, and networking contacts. Mentoring provides significant benefits to mentors as well.
