The American Psychiatric Association's leading educational conference on clinical issues and community mental health to meet the service needs of people with severe mental illness.
APA hosts two major educational conferences every year: the APA Annual Meeting and the Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS). Both meetings provide a robust scientifi c environment featuring new research, patient care strategies, and new treatment choices.
Exhibiting at the IPS is an excellent opportunity to reach a professional audience comprised of psychiatrists and other participants with backgrounds in many branches of the healing arts including psychology, social work, nursing, occupation therapy, and others. The Institute attracts an unusually high percentage of psychiatrists in leadership positions at community mental health centers, state offices of mental health, university clinics and private group practices. Many such individuals play major roles in setting clinic, hospital, city or state pharmaceutical policies. Many have significantly larger caseloads under their supervision or direct care. Thus, the IPS provides a unique opportunity to educate leaders in mental health policy and care from around the country.
The exhibits are an integral part of the American Psychiatric Association Institute on Psychiatric Services. Only companies with a product or service directly related to the field of psychiatry will be considered by the APA.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is the medical specialty society representing 36,000 psychiatrists in the U.S. and from around the world.
APA, founded in 1844, is the largest and longest-serving psychiatric medical association. Its member physicians work together to ensure humane care and effective treatment for all persons with mental
disorders, including intellectual disability and substance use disorders. APA is the voice and conscience of modern psychiatry.
