What are the benefits of ARP Membership? Members receive online access to the journals at a significantly reduced annual rate. Members can also register for the biennial ARP Conference at a discounted rate. Regarding the journals, JRP publishes theoretical and empirical work in the traditional areas of personality psychology, including both trait and dynamic process-oriented approaches, as well as work from related areas (e.g., genetics, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology) that is relevant to understanding both normal and pathological aspects of personality. SPPS, co-sponsored with several other scientific societies, publishes cutting-edge, short reports of important studies in personality and social psychology. Regarding the ARP Conference, we hold a stand-alone meeting every other year. It is an opportunity for researchers to present and discuss cutting edge research about personality.

Dave Nee Foundation

Dave Nee Foundation

The Dave Nee Foundation’s mission is to eliminate the stigma associated with depression and suicide by promoting and encouraging not only the diagnosis and treatment of depression among young adults, but also the education of young people, their families, and friends about the disease of depression.

We believe that a principal reason for the high suicide rate in the United States is a glaring lack of sufficiently candid discussion about, and early treatment of, depression.  We hope to spread the message that depression and thoughts of harming oneself are common and that treatment for depressed and suicidal thoughts must become socially acceptable.

Mental Health Europe (MHE)

Mental Health Europe (MHE)

Mental Health Europe is an umbrella organization which represents associations, organizations and individuals active in the field of mental health and well-being in Europe, including (ex)users of mental health services, volunteers and professionals. As such, MHE bridges the gap between its 73 member organizations and the European institutions, and keeps its members informed and involved in any developments at European Union level.

MHE’s work takes different forms. As the main mental health organization active in Brussels, MHE is committed to advocating for its cause, whether this takes the form of submitting amendments to legislation, consulting with the European Commission, forming alliances with other organizations or being part of expert groups. Mental health Europe also develops and coordinates its own projects, conducts and disseminates research. Working to inform the general public on the plight of people with mental health problems, Mental Health Europe also cooperates closely with the media, and is often featured in prominent media outlets in Brussels and beyond.

Society for Community Research and Action

Society for Community Research and Action

Depending on one’s training, experiences, and preferences, community psychologists can work as educators, professors, program directors, consultants, policy developers, evaluators; and researchers in community organizations, universities, or government agencies to promote mental health and community well-being.We seek to expand “helping” beyond traditional psychotherapy to promote wellness.

We engage in action-oriented research to develop, implement, and evaluate programs.

We base our work on a scientific foundation to better understand the multiple influences of the social environment on health and wellness

We build collaborative relationships with community members, groups, and organizations to solve social problems.

We consult with and provide tools to organizations to build capacity to address social problems such as exploitation and victimization.

We analyze government, civic life, and workplace settings in order to understand and improve fair and diverse participation.

We fight oppression, work to reduce social inequalities, and work with marginalized people toward their empowerment.
