THE 2015 TEXAS LEGISLATIVE SESSION

The Texas Legislature convened in January. It was another challenging Session and the Federation and its member organizations were heavily involved in monitoring legislation and educating legislators about psychiatric issues. 

Member organizations of the Federation, the Texas Society of Psychiatric Physicians, the Texas Academy of Psychiatry and the Texas Society of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, urge you to become involved in the political and legislative process to ensure that quality psychiatric care and patient safety are preserved and protected.

To assist in your involvement in the legislative process, bills of interest to psychiatry in the most recent Legislation Session may be viewed by clicking here.


POLITICAL ACTION

Politics is all about relationships -- "In politics, familiarity doesn't breed contempt. It breeds votes." (Paul Lazarsfeld). The Federation has encouraged all psychiatrists to get to know their elected representatives through its Political Action Task Force, launched during each election cycle. The focus of the Political Action Task Force is to encourage each psychiatrist to contact his/her legislator and engage in a dialogue about quality psychiatric care in Texas. The relationships formed with legislators will pay dividends during the Legislative Session. 

"Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean that politics won’t take an interest in you."    Pericles


ACO's & CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHIATRY

Click here to view a new AACAP document on ACO's & Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: Preparing for the Impact of Healthcare Reform. The document was developed by the AACAP Task Force on Healthcare Delivery Systems. It provides child and adolescent psychiatrists with an overview of the changes in healthcare delivery that are expected to occur as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as well as how these changes will affect the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry.
