PsiChi, The International Honour Society in Psychology Chapter Opening & Induction Ceremony
The Richmond Psychology Association (RPA), founded in 2011, aims to further educate Psychology students, encourage awareness about relevant psychological issues beyond the classroom, and help support student mental health and well-being.
What we do:
RPA is passionate about supporting students like YOU by working to complement students’ academic journeys, as well as support their mental health by advocating for a university-wide culture of wellbeing. We host events including talks by experts in different areas within Psychology, career development workshops, dog therapy, suicide prevention, kindness campaigns, yoga, Virgin Active day passes, mental health awareness, and exam stress management.
The RPA is affiliated with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Psi Chi, the International Honor Societyin Psychology.
We recognize the pandemic’s toll on our mental health and are actively working to support student wellbeing at this time of crisis. We are currently using data we collected from students, faculty, and staff in Fall 2019 on their wellbeing, in order to implement a long-term sustainable action plan, improve existing mental health support, and make services more accessible as we work towards building a university-wide culture of wellbeing.
The RPA has been recognised as Best Club of the Year for the past three years (2017-2020) and for hosting the Event of the Year (2017-2018) with Doug, the Pug from Pets as Therapy (PAT) Charity. Previous RPA newsletters with updates on what’s happening within the world of Psychology, features from alumni, and resources to signpost students to mental health support services are available here.
