Community Mental Health Fund

Donate Today!

The Kentucky Psychological Foundation is participating in this event to fundraise for our newest initiative: The Community Mental Health Fund (CMHF) and we need your support! Please take the time to learn a little about the program below and support our fundraising campaign with a $10, $20, $50, or $100 donation – each donation pushes us toward our goal of $3,000 and helps us begin directly funding someone’s ability to receive the mental healthcare services they need!

The CMHF was designed by KPF utilizing our expertise, community relationships, and network of psychologists across Kentucky to directly address and alleviate existing financial barriers to mental health care through direct cash support qualifying Kentucky residents can use to pay for mental healthcare services. 


Leadership Academy

Information for 2023 coming soon!

Across the many settings in which we work, Psychologists face a challenging job landscape. Emerging into the workforce following our training, we are equipped with many of the skills needed to be effective healthcare and industry leaders. Among many other skills, We have strong analytic ability, the skill to navigate emotionally challenging situations, the ability to integrate feedback and understand systems. However, many of us lack formal leadership training and a framework or philosophy. This program is here to help!

KPF Future Colleague Award

Information for 2023 coming soon!

KPF is happy to announce the Future Colleague Award. These awards are given annually to undergraduate KPA members interested in applying to graduate school in psychology. The award will go toward graduate school application-related expenses. Criteria for the award include involvement in KPA/KPF (e.g., participation in mentorship programs, attendance at events, etc..) and interest in applying to psychology graduate programs. We strongly encourage applications from those who represent identities that have historically been excluded from psychology training programs. The amount and number of awards will be based on available funds and announced in advance on an annual basis.

Mentorship Program

2023 Applications will open in the Fall!

The KPA graduate student mentorship program launched in the Spring of 2021. The program aims to match graduate students with undergraduate or post-bac students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in psychology. This program will support increased diversity in program applicants while helping graduate students develop mentorship and leadership skills. We also see immense value in connecting students from across various experience levels and regions of Kentucky as we move into an increasingly virtual space.
