In 2016, we started #ThisIsHealthPsych as an initiative to draw attention to the Health Psychology field and provide education to the public about what health psychologists do!

In 2016, the Society for Health Psychology celebrated our 38th anniversary! On March 8th (3/8 for Division 38), we challenged all health psychologists to post something they did in the role of health psychology, using the hashtag #ThisIsHealthPsych, with the goal of raising public awareness of the wide range of health psychologists’ skills and abilities.

We hope to continue this tradition by highlighting what health psychologists do on every 03/08. Please join us on social media!

Some highlights from previous years:
