Abstract

This article presents the presidential address delivered by Robert D. Morgan during the 118th annual meeting of the American Psychological Association (APA). This address challenges us, as public service psychologists, to improve services currently offered and to be leaders among those providing mental health services in the public sector. To accomplish this task we must (a) return to our roots as social scientists, (b) rely on basic research to prove our worth as service providers, (c) integrate program evaluation as an essential component in our services, and (d) integrate public service psychology training opportunities at the academic level while developing research networks with academic training programs.
