ACAPT joins FASHP letter to Congress about mental health

Apr 27, 2022

ACAPT and other Federation of Associations of Schools of the Health Professions (FASHP) members signed a letter to Congress to encourage the inclusion of health professions education and training programs in legislative efforts addressing our nation's mental health challenges.

ACAPT encourages more action on this critical issue and we recommend Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs and their students review these mental health resources.
