Who We Are 

Since its formation in 1955, the New York County Psychiatric Society, a District Branch of the American Psychiatric Association, has strived to be a resource for both psychiatrists and the public. NYCPS is composed of over 1,800 psychiatrists in Manhattan and Staten Island, and is the largest district branch of the APA.

We promote the common professional interests of our members, while working to improve the treatment, rehabilitation, and care of persons with mental disorders, and to advance the standards of all psychiatric services and facilities. NYCPS also aims to promote research, foster cooperation between those involved with the medical, psychological, social, and legal aspects of mental health and illness, and to make psychiatric knowledge available to practitioners of medicine, scientists, and the public.
