International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA)

For more than 30 years, the International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA) has been a leader in the field of psychogeriatrics. The diverse disciplines, interests, and geographic communities within IPA symbolize the full spectrum of geriatric mental health. Through our educational activities, scientific meetings, and cutting-edge publications, IPA promotes better mental health for older people all around the world.

IPA represents a commitment to serving the broad spectrum of issues, perspectives, opportunities and challenges of geriatric mental health around the world. Fundamental to IPA is a spirit of connection, collaboration, and community. IPA facilitates professionals connecting and collaborating — interacting and working together in the IPA community on research, practices of care and in general, improving the mental health for all older people around the world. Not only does IPA foster this spirit of community within IPA, but we also seek to work with other organizations that share our commitment, such as those in the IPA Affiliate program, the World Health Organization, United Nations, the World Psychiatric Association, Alzheimer’s Disease International, and many more.
