RCPsych in Scotland

As the professional medical body for psychiatry in Scotland, we set standards and promote excellence in psychiatry and mental healthcare.

We lead, represent and support psychiatrists nationally to government and other agencies, aiming to improve the outcomes of people with mental illness, and the mental health of individuals, their families, and communities.

We are a devolved nation and council of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. We have over 1,400 Members, Fellows, Affiliates and Pre-Membership Trainees in Scotland.
