About the Colleague Assistance Committee
The Colleague Assistance Committee is charged with developing education, peer consultation, and other resources to facilitate the optimal functioning of psychologists in North Carolina. The purposes of this committee include prevention and amelioration of professional distress and impairment and their consequences among psychologists.
