About the Psychopharmacology Institute


The Psychopharmacology Institute has core objective: to provide multimedia resources (video, illustrated articles) that help mental health professionals learn the essentials of psychopharmacology. Our concept of essential aspects includes: clinical features of psychiatric disorders, pharmacology, effectiveness and adverse effects of psychotropic medications.

Clinical psychopharmacology plays an important role in the treatment of people suffering from mental disorders. It is important to note that in order to help patients achieve recovery, biological therapies often need to be combined with other therapeutic resources such as psychotherapy or other psychosocial interventions.
