We invite you to join us at the Westin Copley place in Boston for our annual Psychopharmacology conference. This psychiatry conference examines the latest research and treatment advances across dozens of mental health conditions. It offers in-depth information that is important for all mental health and primary care settings. Topics include ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, OCD, psychosis, PTSD, substance use disorders, and much more.

In every session, our faculty share data from new clinical trials. They match it up against prior data and discuss what the changes mean. They also examine standards of care and share innovative ways to make care better. The agenda touches on many complex topics in mental health. Managing side effects, drug interactions, natural medications, combining pharmacologic and psychosocial treatments, and much more.

Most important of all, our faculty focus on how to translate all these insights into your daily practice. This empowers you to optimize your care for patients with psychiatric conditions. That makes our event ideal for professionals in psychiatry, primary care, psychology, and nursing.
