The membership is multidisciplinary and currently stands at around 500 including psychiatrists, neurologists and clinical psychologists.

The highlight of the Association’s calendar is our two-day annual meeting held in February of each year. This format includes symposia, international guest speakers, member’s papers and posters.
We welcome joint meetings with other organisations either as part of our annual meeting or as BNPA symposia in their meeting.
We also run neuropsychiatry teaching weekends in December of each year for SpRs in psychiatry and neurology which provides for CME/CE credits.
