United Nations Psychology Day

Clinical psychology is the psychological specialty that provides continuing and comprehensive mental and behavioral health care for individuals and families; consultation to agencies and communities; training, education and supervision; and research-based practice. It is a specialty in breadth — one that is broadly inclusive of severe psychopathology — and marked by comprehensiveness and integration of knowledge and skill from a broad array of disciplines within and outside of psychology proper. The scope of clinical psychology encompasses all ages, multiple diversities and varied systems. To that end, Psychology has an important role to play in addressing global challenges like #COVID19 and greater issues of human rights. Today, join the United Nations, hospitals, and psychologists around the world to celebrate #PsychologyDay2020.
