european psychiatric association


The mission of the 22 active EPA Scientific Sections is to explore and solve problems in various specific areas of psychiatry, to collect and disseminate information, to establish working relationships between individuals and with different national and international bodies working in the same field, and to achieve greater coordination. The EPA’s Sections organise their own symposia under the patronage of the EPA, as well as annual conferences throughout Europe.

Although the EPA Office provides administrative support, EPA Sections function independently within the established framework with regard to member recruitment and management, leadership elections, meetings, and internal and external communication.
