Board Operations in Response to COVD-19 Outbreak

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the North Carolina Psychology Board has implemented a teleworking schedule for Board staff members.  For a quicker response, you are encouraged to contact the Board office via email at

 info@ncpsychologyboard.org 

rather than leaving a voicemail message.  This will allow Board staff to help you more efficiently by routing questions to the appropriate person within the Board office.  If you call the Board office and leave a voicemail, Board staff will use its best efforts to return your call before the end of the next business day.  Also, please refrain from leaving the same voicemail message on multiple Board office telephone extensions as this could cause a delay in you receiving a response.

The North Carolina Psychology Board was created in 1967 to carry out provisions of the North Carolina Psychology Practice Act. The Board’s mission is to protect the public from the practice of psychology by unqualified persons and from unprofessional conduct by persons licensed to practice psychology. The Board is comprised of seven members appointed by the Governor to staggered terms of three years. At all times, three members are licensed psychologists, two members are licensed psychological associates, and two members are members of the public who are not licensed under the Act.
