We are the nurses, social workers, doctors, and other professionals who conduct assessments, and we are the hospital and nursing facility staff caring for individuals. We are the counselors comforting those in need, and we are individuals and families with long-term care needs. We are NAPP, and with PASRR, we are improving long-term care.
NAPP membership consists of interested individuals involved with implementing and improving the PASRR process and supplemental services for persons with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and/or related conditions. We work as a team to educate others about and improve the world of PASRR. The annual fee for membership is $25 for individuals, $50 for government agencies and corporations, and $10 for consumers, family members, or students.
