The Central New York Psychological Association (CNYPA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit professional association for licensed psychologists and others affiliated with the delivery of psychological services.

CNYPA was founded in 1989 initially to work for the licensure of psychologists. As the role of New York psychologists expanded over the years, so did CNYPA.

CNYPA's role has expanded throughout the state of New York as its members regularly provide free public service through programs such as its well-respected disaster response service. Additionally, CNYPA works closely with the media to provide timely and accurate information on a variety of issues to increase the understanding of human behavior.
