Our Mission and Vision:

To offer ongoing, educational, and networking opportunities for mental health professionals to better serve the Island of Hawai’i.



The Hawai'i Island Psychological Association (HIPA) is the county psychological association, with members from all regions of our 4,028 square mile island (and growing), often called the Big Island. After meeting informally for several years, HIPA was formally established on April 10, 1994, over thirty years ago, to provide a forum for psychologists on the island of Hawai'i to network and to participate in professional development opportunities. 


Today, all licensed therapists are eligible to become full professional members of the organization.

HIPA provides cost-effective, high quality CE programs. We are an interdisciplinary Association of professionals providing ethical services to our community.
