We aim to improve mental health via promoting excellence in population-based psychiatric research, with a focus on identifying the social risk and protective factors which influence mental health, well-being and disorder.

We are an official section of the European Psychiatric Association. We hold biennial section conferences dedicated to the latest research in psychiatric epidemiology and social psychiatry. We are a highly active, engaged and friendly organisation, with a particular focus on connecting early, mid and senior researchers working in the field. We encourage participation from across Europe and beyond.

Our EPA Section has an official board and advisory committee. You can find out more details here.
