Current Programs and Initiatives

Community Mental Health Project

The CMHP is KPF's most recent program addition and we are working hard to solidify the programs official launch date in the near future. This project seeks to establish and build trust between mental health providers and marginalized communities by providing low to no-cost access to culturally informed high quality psychotherapy, mental health education, and community building. 

Leadership Academy

Across the many settings in which we work, Psychologists face a challenging job landscape. Emerging into the workforce we are equipped with many of the skills needed to be effective healthcare and industry leaders like strong analytic abilities, skills to navigate emotionally challenging situations, and abilities to integrate feedback and understand systems. However, many of us lack formal leadership training and a framework or philosophy - this program can help! Applications for 2024 are open.

Mentorship Program

Launched in the Spring of 2021 this 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.

Kentucky Psychological Sciences Conference

This Conference provides a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present their research in juried competitions, attend workshops, develop practical skills, and network with fellow students from across Kentucky.  Students are encouraged to nominate a faculty member as the Outstanding Graduate or Outstanding Undergraduate Mentor.  Faculty members are invited to participate in the Conference as judges, mentors, and coaches.  

Multicultural Award

Every year the Kentucky Psychological Foundation honors two recipients with a Multicultural Professional Development Award at the KPA Annual Convention.



  • Multicultural Psychologist Professional Development Award

  • Multicultural Student Professional Development Award

Future Colleague Award

These awards are given annually to undergraduate KPA members interested in applying to graduate school in psychology to go toward  application-related expenses. Criteria for the award include involvement in KPA/KPF  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.

Community Events
