The Wisconsin Chapter of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association seeks to engage in statewide initiatives to promote mental health; recovery from mental illness; and the reduction of stigma associated with mental illness. We work to support the mission of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association through networking, continuing education and political awareness, while recognizing and encouraging the diversity of the Wisconsin Chapter membership.
We would also like to announce that the APNA Wisconsin Board of Directors is planning a service project for 2015. We will begin collecting new children's' books for boys and girls ages preschool to teen. These books will be distributed to the two Wisconsin state psychiatric hospitals for visiting children/ family members who come to visit patients at these two facilities. Please consider bringing a book to donate!
Any APNA member who resides in Wisconsin is automatically a member of the Wisconsin Chapter. If you are interested in joining or renewing your APNA membership, please visit the Membership page.
