WASHINGTON, March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) received the 2009 Outstanding Leadership Award of the American Psychological Association Practice Organization (APAPO) for his advocacy work and legislative accomplishments on mental health issues. This annual award is given to a member of Congress who has prominently championed the goals of professional psychology.

"Senator Bingaman has been a tireless crusader of mental health rights and a strong supporter of mental health legislation," says Marilyn Richmond, JD, assistant executive director of government relations for the American Psychological Association Practice Directorate. "The APA is delighted to present this award to someone who has worked hard to restore Medicare reimbursement cuts from outpatient mental health services in 2007."

Senator Bingaman has also been a strong and vocal supporter of the Wellstone-Domenici mental health parity legislation, which sought to improve mental health care for all Americans.

"Mental health is an essential part of a comprehensive healthcare and I am honored to receive this award and serve as an ambassador for mental healthcare reform to Congress," states Senator Bingaman.

Senator Bingaman is currently serving his fifth term as the senior senator from New Mexico. The Senator sits on the Energy and Natural Resource committee; the Finance committee; the Health, Education, Labor and Pension committee; and the Joint Economic committee.

The American Psychological Association Practice Organization is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association, the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States. APA's membership includes more than 150,000 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants and students.
