A new collaboration with the World Psychiatric Association

A new collaboration between the Royal Society of Medicine and the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) is set to expand the learning and education opportunities for psychiatrists across the globe.

The World Psychiatric Association is a global organisation representing 145 psychiatric societies in 121 countries and brings together more than 250,000 psychiatrists. With 70+ scientific sections, publications and educational programmes, the WPA promotes collaborative work in all areas of psychiatry.

Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE, Council Trustee and President of the Psychiatry Section at the RSM, said: “I am delighted by the news of this newly formed partnership between the RSM and WPA, which joins two large and influential medical bodies. Bringing together expertise and knowledge, and indicates our Society’s total commitment to share best practice globally.”

Dr Afzal Javed, President of the WPA, said: “With this mutually beneficial collaboration, we are able to not only provide a wider audience for the RSM, but our WPA members are able to benefit from a wealth of medical information and educational resources as well as a number of networking opportunities with their peers. We are excited by this opportunity and see it as the beginning of many more such collaborations with other organisations supporting mental health issues globally.”
