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

College Reports

College reports (previously known as Council Reports) have been formally approved by a meeting of the Policy and Public Affairs Committee of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and constitute official College policy until revised or withdrawn.

The majority of these reports are available in downloadable PDF format. Downloads are free of charge.

(You will need Adobe Acrobat on your computer to be able to read PDF files.)


What does 'under review' mean?

All College Reports are given a currency period - usually between two and five years after approval - after which time they are reviewed, and either reconfirmed as statements of current policy, updated as necessary, or withdrawn. Where a College Report is marked as being 'under review', this indicates that the review process has been initiated. Reports marked 'under review' remain current College policy until they are replaced or withdrawn. If the report number, or title, you are searching for is not listed below, this indicates that it has been withdrawn.
