PPSM offers many opportunities for members of our community as well as our organizational members to receive advanced training in PMADs, as well as CMEs. We have multiple speakers who can meet with your group. 

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.
