ADVOCACY

The OPA advocates not just for the profession of psychology, but also for improved access to high-quality mental health services for the people of Ontario. The OPA is raising the profile of psychology with the public, government, media, and other stakeholders. We know and understand the needs for mental health in the province prior to COVID exceeded the supply and now since COVID have become overwhelming. The province faces serious and significant challenges as they try to fill these demands.


OPA NETWORKING

OPA members can benefit from the support they receive through their OPA colleagues.  Whether meeting through the Listserv, or face to face at a continuing education event; whether seeking to hire someone using OPA Marketplace or looking for a supervisor, the OPA brings the psychological community together.   The OPA  LISTSERV(s) allow members to give and receive “just-in-time” guidance, advice and mentoring. Our members tell us that this is one of the most valued services we offer.  Members have access to the collected wisdom of our profession from psychologists who practice in the same province as you. In addition OPA members can opt in to the OPA’s e-referral and matching service powered by Strata Health Pathways system as well as our searchable online Find a Psychologist and Media Contact databases, accessible to the public other health professionals, government and media.

We are excited to share that we have begun working with Refer To Me and their Health Professionals Directory. We are pleased to announce ReferToMe.ca as both a trusted OPA resource to find professionals to refer both our members and the public to, AND also provide a discount offer to our members.
 
By way of background, Refer To Me is primarily a B2B Canadian health technology company based in Toronto. It was founded by an Ontario-based psychologist who, after thirty years in private practice, recognized the need for health professionals to have a common space in which to network and refer to one another.
Refer To Me allows professionals to sign up for a membership that is best suited for each of them. Health professionals may sign up to either grow their practices or lighten their workloads (refer out only).
 
Professionals typically receive a 1-month free trial period when they sign up for a Grow Practice subscription. However, OPA members are being offered a 3-month free trial period when they sign up for a paid ‘grow practice’ membership.
 
For verification purposes, a unique code – RTMOPA – must be used on the checkout page at https://refertome.ca/associations-organizations/ to receive the additional months free.
 
When signing up, OPA members who want to grow their practice may request either a monthly or annual subscription further to their free trial period. These members can create a profile page with information that the general public and other professionals, who are looking to make referrals, can access. There is no fee if you’d like to sign up for the Lighten workload membership, to refer out only.
