Political Action

Oregon psychiatrists face significant challenges in the public policy arena from ending insurance discrimination against patients to providing adequate funding for mental health services to fighting scope of practice expansion for non-medical professionals. The Oregon Psychiatrists Political Action Committee exists to help get psychiatrists' message to legislators through campaign contributions.

OPPAC seeks to endorse legislative candidates who have a record of supporting psychiatry and who further understand the value of a strong system of mental health care. OPPAC also helps political newcomers based on interviews about our key issues.

We encourage all psychiatrists to contribute to this important political effort. Contributions can be sent to OPPAC; PO Box 21571; Keizer, OR 97307. Corporate as well as personal checks are accepted and personal contributions may qualify for an Oregon state income tax credit of up to $100 on a joint return.
