About us

The Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) is the professional and educational body for psychiatrists in the UK.


The College received its Royal Charter in 1926. With over 16,000 members worldwide RCPsych is an international leader in developing excellence and promoting best practice in mental health.


Our pioneering Centre for Advanced Learning and Conferences (CALC) is the unit within the College responsible for developing and delivering the College's conferences (some with 200 speakers) and Educational Training Activities.


CALC provides research and strategic development to its members. We are very much seen as one of the ‘Jewels in the crown’ of the College.


In addition, CALC partners with business organisations to create bespoke programmes to support wellbeing of staff, CPD, coaching and more to enhance organisational development.

To date, as a Royal College, we have worked in partnership with national and international organsiations within the private and public sectors to provide learning interventions. The flexibility of our approach means we can support multinational, blue chip companies, SME’s or charities with the same focus and success for learners and the organisation.

RCPsych is committed to improving the understanding of psychiatry and mental health and aims to set standards and promote excellence in psychiatry and mental healthcare. Working to improve understanding of the interaction between mental and physical health and the social and cultural context in which people live.


We are at the forefront in setting and achieving the highest standards through education, training and research.


CALC is leading the way in developing excellence and promoting best practice in mental health services.
