How to join Vision The Institute for Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA) is the conduit for monitoring legislative, regulatory and policy matters affecting mental health.

Councils are comprised of a group of members with similar interests in an aspect of psychiatric mental health nursing not addressed elsewhere within APNA. Councils are approved by and report to the APNA Board of Directors. Council chairs will study and review issues pertinent to the council's area of interest and expertise and make recommendations to the Board for the following: • Position or policy statements • New programs or activities • Committee or task force membership Addictions Council Chair Matthew Tierney, PMHNP-BC, ANP-BC Addictions Council for APNA Members*   Administrative Council Avni Cirpili, MSN, RN - Chair Administrative Council for APNA Members* APRN Council Sattaria Dilks, DNP, APRN, PMHNP-BC -Chair Kathryn Johnson, MSN, PMHCNS-BC, PMHNP-BC - Co-Chair APRN Council for APNA Members* Child & Adolescent Council Julie A.

An institute provides direct input to the Board of Directors through the Office of the President on an assigned psychiatric-mental health nursing issue that spans virtually all aspects of the profession. It is similar to a task force except that its mission may require several years to complete, while a task force generally completes its work in about a year. The purpose of an institute is to utilize membership expertise in the development of programs and services aimed at addressing the institute's main focus through a series of chaired workgroups.
