The American Psychiatric Association is our voice in the nation’s capital. We work with our elected representatives, federal agencies, and national groups like NAMI to achieve fair access to quality care for our patients, fair treatment for our profession, and to promote a healthy society. 


The California Psychiatric Association is our voice in Sacramento. We protect our patients from unqualified practitioners and ensure fair reimbursement, proper management of mental health funding, proper regulation of mental health insurance, and proper care of psychiatric patients in state hospitals and correctional facilities.


The Southern California Psychiatric Society is our voice in local mental health systems. We ensure access to essential mental health services. We engage psychiatric residents and faculty in the broader psychiatric community and ensure a proper professional environment for psychiatrists who work in public and private organized systems of care.

Consider SCPS your invitation to continued professional excellence. Annual scientific symposia, annual psychopharmacology meeting, and regional /committee-sponsored meetings keep you up-to-date on developments in the field.
