The Australian Psychological Society (APS) is the largest professional association for psychologists in Australia, representing over 21,000 members.

The APS is committed to advancing psychology as a discipline and profession. It spreads the message that psychologists make a difference to peoples’ lives, through improving scientific knowledge and community wellbeing.

APS members form a dynamic group that advocate for psychologists at all levels of government. They are constantly promoting the contributions psychology makes to people's health and wellbeing, and to understanding important social issues facing Australian society.

The APS is well positioned to seize opportunities that will benefit APS psychologists and the science and profession of psychology. Extensive planning has ensured the Society has a firm, clear view of the organisation's mission and objectives.


The APS is dedicated to advancing the discipline and profession of psychology for the benefit of our members and the communities they serve.
