PPSM offers many opportunities for members of our community as well as our organizational members to receive advanced training in PMADs.
We have a strong belief that those involved in the care of an individual who may be suffering or displaying symptoms should have advanced training.
This is a set of disorders that have a complex etiology. Those suffering deserve understanding as well as the best care possible.
