The National Latinx Psychological Association (NLPA) is a national organization of mental health professionals, academics, researchers, and students whose objective is to generate and advance psychological knowledge and foster its effective application for the benefit of the Latinx population.

NLPA roots go back as far as the 1970s, but the organization formally reorganized in 2002 and incorporated in Arizona, where its first national conference was held in 2004.
