Our purpose is to liaise with, and help educate and inform:
- colleagues within the College
- external statutory and voluntary groups and agencies.
We believe that this will support the aim of improving the standard of care given to those who look to us for help.
Due to increasing sub-specialisation, we feel it is important that members' views are adequately represented.

General Adult psychiatrists make up 40% of the psychiatrists working in the UK, and our faculty is the route by which our views are represented in the College and beyond.
Our numbers and our workloads mean that we are the backbone of psychiatry in the services in which we work, and it is therefore important that this perspective is represented through the structures of the College and more widely.
We are committed to the delivery of comprehensive, high quality secondary care mental health services and see the role of well trained and well supported psychiatrists as central to this goal.
By promoting the importance of our everyday work, we seek to support members as they continue to show great commitment to their patients, their patients’ families and the communities in which they work even during times of financial pressure and constraint.
General adult psychiatrists are skilled in the management of complexity and risk, and these skills are of immense benefit to the people who we see and the organisations and communities in which we work. As a faculty we need to understand the challenges we all face, as well as the successes we achieve.
All members of our faculty are part of this and we want to continue to support our members vigorously in the work they do.
All of us at every level can lead, and our faculty exists to encourage us all to see that we can do this.
