Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was honored last night by the American Psychological Association Practice Organization (APAPO) for his advocacy work and legislative accomplishments on mental health issues. APAPO recognized Sen. Brown with the 2014 Outstanding Leadership Award, given annually to a member of Congress who has done good work on behalf of professional psychology.
Sen. Brown has prominently championed the goals of professional psychology. He is the lead sponsor of Senate Bill 1064, APAPO priority legislation to allow psychologists to practice in the Medicare program without unnecessary physician supervision.
"Senator Brown has always been a mental health leader in Congress and we are pleased that he is sponsoring this important patient access legislation," says Katherine C. Nordal, PhD, APAPO's executive director.
Sen. Brown is serving his second term in the United States Senate representing Ohio.
