Global Neuropsychiatry Group

Latest GNG-INA Webinar and Case Discussion

Professionals interested in the interface between neurology and psychiatry are invited to join the Global Neuropsychiatry Group.  This virtual group provides a forum for psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, neurophysiologists, clinical neuroscientists and others interested in neurosciences to share knowledge and learn from each other. The group aims to make neuropsychiatry accessible across the globe. Clinicians have an opportunity to discuss complex cases and share research ideas.

The group is truly international. It has been active for two years and has approximately 400 members from the US, Canada, SA, UK, Germany, India, Australia and many more countries. Accordingly, it also enables an understanding of service provision and clinical practices in different countries worldwide and opens the door for multinational research. In addition, mindful of the gap in training for neurology trainees in psychiatry and psychiatry trainees in neurology across the globe, this forum provides a source of education and a way of establishing networks not only with peers but also with senior clinicians and academics.

The group meets virtually on the last Thursday of the month for an hour, 10:30 am -12:00 am GMT, London time. The format is a mixture of talks and case presentations. Besides the monthly international virtual meetings, WhatsApp as mobile and Basecamp as email platforms have been set up for clinical and research-related day-to-day discussions. These platforms can also be used to communicate with each other. Recordings of the webinar are posted for people who cannot attend on the day.

Anybody wishing to join the WhatsApp group can share their mobile number, click on the chat link below and/ or join via email using Basecamp. WhatsApp appears to be more popular. Most of the senior clinicians are connected that way.

The contact person is Jasvinder Singh, a neuropsychiatrist based in Brisbane, who established The Global Neuropsychiatry Group.

The International Neuropsychiatry Association endorses the Global Neuropsychiatry Group. We also have support from ABN, ANZAN and BNPA.
