Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. However, mental illness affects everyone directly or indirectly through family, friends or coworkers. Despite mental illnesses’ reach and prevalence, stigma and misunderstanding are also, unfortunately, widespread.
The Nevada Psychiatric Association (NPA) is a professional, non-profit corporation serving psychiatrists in Nevada. It is organized for the purpose of supporting professionalism in the practice of psychiatry and promoting top quality mental health care.
The NPA Psychopharmacology Update is one of the nation’s largest conferences in the field, providing comprehensive state-of-the-art information on the psycho-pharmacological treatment of psychiatric disorders most commonly encountered in clinical practice.
