STOP PSYCHOLOGY PRESCRIBING IN NEW YORK STATE

Take Action!

All NYSPA members should contact their state Senator as soon as possible to urge them to oppose S.7488, a bill that would grant prescribing privileges to psychologists licensed in New York State. This legislation dangerously encroaches on the practice of medicine and would compromise patient safety by permitting psychologists to prescribe psychotropic medications without adequate medical education and training. Please use the link to the right where it says “take action” to send a message about this extremely important issue to your Senator today.
