Welcome to the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry

Leading Psychiatric Thought since 1946

GAP is a think tank of top psychiatric minds whose thoughtful analysis and recommendations serve to influence and advance modern psychiatric theory and practice.

Because psychiatry is a multifaceted medical specialty encompassing the biopsychosocial paradigm, committees consider issues ranging from psychopharmacology to the ethical and moral issues inherent in the practice of a field fraught with technical and human pitfalls.
