Welcome to WFSBP

Founded in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry is a non-profit, international organization composed of over 60 national societies of biological psychiatry, representing over 4,500 professionals.
As a world authority on biological psychiatry, WFSBP is also highly committed to pioneering and promoting the highest levels of education and dissemination within the field.


It is a great pleasure to announce that on September 16th, 2014 the WFSBP President-elect, Prof. Masatoshi Takeda, was elected as Secretary for Scientific Meetings of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA).

We trust that with this additional capacity he will spare no effort in providing high-quality service to both WFSBP and WPA; thus, strengthening the mutually beneficial relationship between these two worldwide Psychiatric organisations. We all wish him great success in accomplishing his upcoming tasks in WPA, as it is continuously the case with his strong commitment to WFSBP.

Prof. Constantin R. Soldatos
