Membership

Who Can Join ISPS?

ISPS welcomes anyone interested in psychological approaches to psychosis – nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, arts therapists, occupational therapists, psychotherapists, academics, students, managers, service users and carers. We believe that there is a useful place for many approaches and many perspectives.

What Are The Benefits of Membership?

Membership of ISPS offers a range of benefits, which we’ve listed below.

In order to make ISPS UK accessible to people on a very low income (unwaged, minimum waged and students) we are offering an ISPS UK Network Only membership option. This entitles the member to all the benefits of being a member of ISPS UK.  ISPS UK network Only members are not members of the International ISPS and, as such, are not entitled to vote in international matters or receive a year’s subscription to the journal Psychosis.
