Our Mission

As the philanthropic arm of AAPP, our mission is to advance the psychiatric pharmacy profession by supporting research, scholarship, and practitioner development.

The Foundation’s mission complements that of our affiliated association, the American Association of Psychiatric Pharmacists (AAPP), which focuses on serving psychiatric pharmacists and aspiring psychiatric pharmacists and advancing their reach and practice.

Our Vision

A world where individuals with mental health disorders receive optimal care because psychiatric pharmacists are an essential member of the health care team.

Core Purpose

The AAPP Foundation shall support or conduct initiatives which:

  1. Demonstrate the value of psychiatric pharmacists
  2. Contribute to the development of future leaders in the profession
  3. Support new practitioners
  4. Support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) relationship as well as similar patient advocacy organizations through modest mental health related campaigns and events at AAPP Annual Meetings

Board of Directors

The AAPP Foundation Board is comprised of individuals that believe in the value that pharmacists bring as members of the healthcare team to those living with mental illness and the role the Foundation can play in enriching pharmacist skills and understanding through connecting and educating.
