The Black Psychiatrists of America (BPA) serves as the certifying body for psychiatrists and other mental health professionals seeking to establish a local or state chapter of the BPA. In densely populated areas there may be more than one chapter in the area. In sparsely populated areas, chapters may draw members from more than one city, county or state area. BPA requires a minimum of five (5) health care professionals before a local/state chapter can be chartered. Three (3) of the organizing members must be psychiatrists.
