The South African Society of Psychiatrists is the only professional body in South Africa that represents
the interests of the majority of Psychiatrists in South Africa.
The Society is also actively involved in South Africa and Internationally to destigmatize Mental Illness
and is fighting against discrimination against people who suffer with mental illness.
The Society is managed by a team of elected volunteers, all Psychiatrists.
Elections take place biannually at the Biennial National Psychiatric Congress.
