The SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PSYCHIATRIC SOCIETY

is our voice in local mental health systems. We ensure access to essential mental health services. We engage psychiatric residents and faculty in the broader psychiatric community and ensure a proper professional environment for psychiatrists.

This is important work. But it is more than that. The fundamental role of organized psychiatry is to protect our profession and our patients. Accomplishing this deepens and enriches our professional and personal lives through camaraderie, career development, education and purpose.
