#304 Stefanie Reeves of the Maryland Psychological Association on Running a Small State Association

Stefanie Reeves has spent much of her career running government affairs programs for large national associations but has recently transitioned to the broader role of Executive Director for the state organization -- the Maryland Psychological Association. The MPA works with the doctors that do talk therapy, rather than the ones that prescribe medicine. It's been a couple of years since that move but we chat with her about the changes and challenges of working in a staff of four instead of 600. Mental health is one of the most stigmatized areas of health to consider and insuring it is often more difficult than the obvious physical ailments like a broken arm. The Maryland Psychological Association (MPA) is the professional membership association for psychologists and other mental health professionals in the state.

Stefanie Reeves is the Executive Director of the Maryland Psychological Association based in Columbia, MD.
