The American Psychiatric Association invites you to exhibit at the 66th Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS), October 30-November 2 (exhibit dates October 30-November 1), in San Francisco, CA. The theme is "Integrating Science and Care in a New Era of Population Health".

Exhibiting at the IPS is an excellent opportunity to reach a professional audience comprised of psychiatrists and other participants with backgrounds in many branches of the healing arts including psychology, social work, nursing, occupation therapy, and others.  The Institute attracts an unusually high percentage of psychiatrists in leadership positions at community mental health centers, state offices of mental health, university clinics and private group practices. Many such individuals play major roles in setting clinic, hospital, city or state pharmaceutical policies.  Many have significantly larger caseloads under their supervision or direct care.  Thus, the IPS provides a unique opportunity to educate leaders in mental health policy and care from around the country.

To increase traffic in the exhibit hall, there will be an APA Cafe', with free Wi-Fi, food, beverages, receptions, and giveaways
