Representative Maria Syms was named a Friend of Psychology by the Arizona Psychological Association last weekend at their 2017 Legislative Luncheon.

The Arizona Psychological Association presented the Friend of Psychology award to Representative Syms for preserving the critical role that psychologists play in the public sector and highlighting the tremendous benefits that psychologists provide to crime victims. Representative Syms was the only recipient of the award this year.

"Quality mental health care is critical to our success as a state, and I am proud of our legislative achievements this year in helping the psychological well-being of sexual assault and domestic violence survivors, veterans, and children," said Representative Syms. "I applaud the Arizona Psychological Association for their attention and dedication to these issues, and thank them for recognizing our efforts at the Legislature."
