Making a Difference in Individuals Lives! 

The National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP) is comprised of caring professionals who partner together to improve the quality of long-term care for individuals with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and related conditions. We are the federal and state agency staff who develop and implement the programs, and we are the social and human services groups that provide oversight and advocacy.  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.
