Fort Bend Psychological Association
Welcome to FBPA

Fort Bend Psychological Association (FBPA) was formally organized to promote psychology as a science and as a profession, to promote human welfare and mental health, to represent psychological practitioners in Southeast Texas, to uphold ethical standards for psychologists, to provide a basis for professional growth and social interaction among area psychologists, and to attract new professionals to Southeast Texas.

Serving the Communities of:
  • Sugar Land
  • Katy
  • Richmond
  • Rosenberg
  • Missouri City
  • Stafford
  • Southwest Houston

The Fort Bend Psychological Association has been in existence since the early 1990's. It was  founded to provide ongoing education to and collaboration among local psychologists and other mental health professionals. Not only does it meet these goals today, but it also serves to champion the benefits of psychology to this community.   If you are a local psychologist and you are looking to become involved in your local mental health community, please contact a member of the Executive Committee.

FBPA meets monthly to hear various topics of interest presented by subject-area experts. Meetings occur on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, and they are held in various locations. The topics and locations are updated on the Upcoming Events page of this website.
