Wyoming Board of Psychology

Board Purpose

The Wyoming Board of Psychology is legislatively mandated to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Wyoming by ensuring that those individuals licensed or certified to provide psychology or behavior analyst services in this state are appropriately qualified.

The Board is not the same as the Wyoming Psychological Association.  The Board, unlike the Association, does not advocate on behalf of the licensee, but on behalf of the public consumer.  While the Board and the Association may collaborate, their roles are different.

At any one time 1 in 5 people have an active mental health diagnosis and are receiving treatment. Fifty percent (50%) of the population at some time in their life will receive mental health treatment. These are just the individuals who are tracked through insurance companies, this does not include private pay or more often, those that are not receiving any treatment but desperately need it. 

Health care cost for heart disease is second to the amount of money that is spent on mental health treatment.

Psychologists are trained to help people who are suicidal, they have the power to take basic freedoms away from individuals, custody recommendations, guardianship, incarcerations regarding mental competence evaluations,  and mental fitness for service in professions such as the military, physicians, airline pilots, and law enforcement. Psychologists make life and death decisions. Early mental health intervention is cost saving and reduces costs and negative health impacts of major diseases like hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.

Boards do not create barriers, they create standards to ensure that psychologists are qualified for the services they are providing.  Boards level the playing field by developing credentialing, education and training requirements that are stringent and rigorous to ensure this grave responsibility is being appropriately applied. Boards are the voice for the people.

Board Composition

The Board is empowered to provide for the licensure and regulations of Psychologists practicing in Wyoming. There are 9 seats on this Board. The service term for a Board Members is 5 years. The Board is required to meet once a year.

Appointment distribution: The Wyoming state board of psychology shall consist of six (6) licensed psychologists, two (2) licensed behavior analysts, and one (1) public member.
