The Cape Fear Psychological Association (CFPA) is an unaffiliated group of psychologists with expertise in psychological and neuropsychological therapy and testing. Centered around Wilmington, North Carolina, CFPA has been in existence for over twenty years. The Cape Fear Psychological Association is interested in further promoting the field of psychology within the greater Wilmington, NC area. This includes making the public more aware of the psychological therapy and testing services available through public and private venues, as well as the overall importance of mental health and full psychological well-being. To increase awareness about psychological issues, the Cape Fear Psychological Association has initiated a free lecture series along with a Speakers Bureau, to discuss psychological therapy and testing to individuals and groups in the Wilmington region. For more information about either of these services please contact CFPA.
