The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Old Age Psychiatry Faculty and Executive Committee


Old Age Psychiatry Faculty  

The Faculty

The Old Age Faculty represents a relatively new specialty and is a dynamic group within the College. Members meet two times a year for educational and developmental purposes. There is an additional, well attended, residential meeting every year.

 

 

The Faculty Executive

Much of the day-to-day business of the Faculty is carried out by an Executive Committee of representatives and directly elected officers. 

The Faculty takes primary responsibility within the College for formulating policies on psychiatric services to older people and giving advice to other bodies (including the Department of Health) on matters pertaining to the mental health of older people.

It has an important role in supporting its members through a rich educational programme and by providing personal support and expert advice if members are under particular pressure in their local services.

It also contributes fully to the College’s other activities in maintaining training standards, research, public education and other areas.
