The International Federation of Psychiatric Epidemiology – IFPE - is an international organization devoted to the promotion of epidemiological and health services research on mental disorders. It is an independent non-profit association relying entirely on annual subscription fees. There are corporate, individual, and associate members.
Founded at an international conference in Brussels in 1985, French-speaking meetings have been held in Lyon(1981) and Geneva (1983). From those beginnings, the Federation has grown into a truly global organization.
