The EAGP has a very important role connecting geriatric psychiatrists across European nations, improving teaching and educational opportunities, and promoting research.We have done well encouraging national geriatric psychiatry organisations to join the EAGP.
We hope that this initiative will help to support the development of specialist services for the mental health of older people in more European countries.
We are keen to increase the range of advantages of membership starting with a discount at the 2nd EAGP summer school hosted by Professor Armin von Gunten in Lausanne September 2015. Through this website, the newsletter and annual congresses and meetings
we hope to promote greater connectivity between EAGP members and also encourage trainees in geriatric psychiatryto raise their ambitions and expectations. Together we can achieve great things!

President of the EAGP
