The Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) dates back to 1968 in San Francisco when a small group of Black psychologists around the globe decided to come together and create an organization rooted in possibility for Black professionals. Their primary role/function, in relation to public health promotion and prevention, has been to actively address the issues being faced by Black psychologists and those within the Black community. In addition to this, the organization strives to induce a positive impact on mental health by introducing educational programs, various training courses, and consistent advocacy in order to conquer historical social inequities within the Black community, and its professionals.

Overtime, ABPsi has narrowed in on education by creating CABP (Certification in African Centered Black Psychology). This certification has been offered to African-Centered psychologists to further enhance their understanding of African diaspora (as it relates to psychology) and the ways in which to best offer culturally congruent services and education to the communities they serve.

As of right now, there are no public events going on due to the national pandemic of COVID-19. I believe that events (as well as social media due to current circumstances) are the best way to advocate ABPsi’s purpose. The use of social media would also be a great way to reach their target audience – young Black Psychologists, and professionals. Prior to COVID-19, many events were in place to ensure that its members are being educated, uplifted and encouraged to fight for the mental health of the entire Black community.

When speaking to the public relations officer of the Will County Health Department in Illinois, I received a detailed history of the agency. The agency started in the 1940s when the county experienced a population boom. The first services offered were basic clinic services such as routine doctors visits. As the years passed, more and more services were offered. First there was a need for prenatal care for the women in the county, and after that, drug counseling, veterans services, mental health, water testing, dental services, and many more. About 20 years ago, there was a need for more bilingual and hispanic resources due to the increasing population. And the agency acted quickly and hired more bilingual employees and began offering video and written information in multiple languages. Recently, there has been a huge focus on behavioral health in children and adolescents. The agency has been working with local hospitals and schools to ensure the children of the county have access to behavioral health services.

Today, there are no main services offered, all services have full departments and some are in such high demand that they have separate satellite locations. However, the dental department is quite large and the agency even has a mobile dental unit to reach those that cannot travel easily. I feel that the agency is doing very well, the only area that I feel can be improved is drug and alcohol abuse prevention in the community. There are still a substantial amount of opioid overdoses and DUI’s occurring in the county.
