Psychopharmacology is the scientific study of the use of pharmacological compounds in the treatment of mental disorders. Physicians and other prescribers with expertise in psychopharmacology apply their knowledge of pharmacokinetics (what the body does to medication) and pharmacodynamics (what the medications do to the body) in finding optimal medication regimens in treating mental health conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc. 

OUR MEETINGS

ASCP organizes three major meetings per year. The Fall and Spring Update on Psychopharmacology: State of the Art meetings (East and West coast) bring together a number of outstanding psychopharmacologists to educate participants about the latest developments in the field.  

The ASCP Annual Meeting brings together over 1200 academic and industry investigators, research pharmacists, clinicians and representatives from regulatory agencies to discuss newer treatments and facilitate collaborations.
