SF 26 – Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact.

We Support This Bill.

Summary: AN ACT relating to professional licensing; adopting the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact; authorizing the temporary and telemedicine based provision of psychology services by psychologists not licensed to practice psychology in Wyoming; providing for participation in the compact; making conforming amendments; assigning duties to the Wyoming state board of psychology; authorizing the fingerprinting and background investigation of psychology license applicants and license renewals; and providing for an effective date.
Why It Matters: This compact would allow psychologists to practice across states that have joined the compact from their home state. Therefore, Wyoming would gain access to more mental health care providers than before the compact. This would also allow Wyoming mental health providers to expand practices and work with patients in other states. Mental healthcare is important for the wellbeing of women and girls in Wyoming.
