3. Indigenous Society of Psychologists (ISP)
Indigenous Society of Psychologists is an organization with the intent of creating supportive relationships that provide a professional network within the field of Psychology. Our members work together to raise awareness for the mental health conditions that impact indigenous communities. The educational resources we share further advance our understanding of Psychology, and our communal support gives students the tools they need to become leaders.
Meeting times change semester to semester.
