IFPB Membership Benefits

Membership of the International Forum of Psychosis & Bipolarity offers a number of benefits:


The International Forum of Psychosis & Bipolarity runs an annual meeting - The International Review of Psychosis & Bipolarity - which allows Members to network and learn about recent progress in all aspects of Psychosis and Bipolarity.  The IRPB merges The International Review of Bipolar Disorders, which is the largest annual conference on Bipolar Disorders attracting many of the world’s most respected experts, and the Winter Workshop on Psychosis, a research-led conference on Psychosis. Abstracts from the conference are published in the journal International Clinical Psychopharmacology.

Members are entitled to a 5% discount from the delegate fees at the annual meeting. Instructions to secure the discount will be given in the membership confirmation email. They can also pick up delegate badges/ bags early.

Online Learning Library

Sessions from past annual IRPB meetings have been audio-recorded and, in some cases, video'ed. Conference talks are available on the Online Learning Library and are available exclusively to all IFPB Members. Members can review talks missed at the conference or enjoy a second viewing. There are over 100 talks currently available in the Library. Each talk is worth 1 CME point.

Task Forces

The IFPB Task Forces have been created to develop an IFPB position on a treatment area. Each task force will be led by an expert and all members are invited to express their views. Draft consensus statements will be published over the next six months in key topic areas. First consensus statements will be reviewed finally at the IRPB conference in 2014 and will be publicized shortly thereafter.

Verba Mentis, an e-newsletter published by the organisers of the IRPB, is also available as part of the membership. The newsletter is published 4 times a year and features cutting edge abstracts, the VM Profile series, interviewing an expert in their field, and business news.

Annual Review Publication

The IFPB will produce an Annual Review publication including several expert review articles on relevant topics in the areas of Psychosis and Bipolarity, and a series of interesting short papers. IFPB members will have exclusive access to this publication and can submit papers for inclusion in the Annual Review.

In 2006 the IFPB (formerly EBF) committee launched the Lifetime Achievement Award which is an annual rolling award. The list of those who have received this award since its inception is an impressive one.
