We are proud to partner with PsychopathyIs for this program. PsychopthyIs is an organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering caused by psychopathy. Worldwide, psychopathy affects over 1 in 100 people and is a major source of distress and impairment. But myths, stigmas, and lack of information about psychopathy can make it difficult for people affected by psychopathy and their families to find the support they need. They are dedicated to raising awareness of psychopathy, providing screening tools and other resources for affected individuals and families, and raising funds for research. We also aim to create educational tools for professionals and a national database of treatment providers to help share truths about what psychopathy is and isn't.
