Each year the NZPsS has a national Psychology Week. This initiative aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help people, families/whanau and communities find ways to increase their psychological wellbeing. It also aims to raise awareness of the wide variety of roles that psychologists have in the health, justice, corrections, educational and other sectors. Psychology Week features events involving the New Zealand Psychological Society psychologists across the country including public events and media articles on a range of issues. The public is welcome at all events; attendance is free.
