IPA Affiliates

The International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA) encourages affiliation for all related multinational, national, regional and local organizations that share the common mission of advancing clinical practice, research, and education to improve the mental health of the elderly. IPA values the increased impact that a coalition of related organizations can achieve, and invites all related organizations to affiliate with IPA. Together, we can achieve meaningful and measurable improvements in the mental health and well being of our elderly around the world.

The principal criterion for affiliation is that these organizations be comprised of professionals concerned primarily with activities germane to, or related to, those of IPA.

Organizations interested in learning more about the IPA Affiliate Organization program and applying for affiliation to IPA should contact the IPA Secretariat at info@ipa-online.org.
