The Southern Psychiatric Association was established in 1935 to further the study of all subjects pertaining to the cause, treatment, and prevention of psychiatric disorders; to promote the interests, maintenance, and the advancement of standards in public and private hospitals for psychiatric disorders, or outpatient clinics, and all other agencies concerned with the medical, social, and legal aspects of these disorders; and to further psychiatric knowledge in other branches of medicine and in other sciences and to furnish the public with the proper concept of psychiatric disease.


SPA's original membership territory in 1935 was limited to the 15 states shown below and featured in our official logo/seal.  But now we've recently expanded our territory to include any of the other 50 states and U.S. territories!
