American Psychiatric Association Publishing was founded in 1981 as a division of the American Psychiatric Association to distribute the association’s publications and to publish other, independent titles. It now publishes books, journals, and multimedia on psychiatry, mental health, and behavioral science geared toward psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, psychiatric residents, medical students, and the general public. The American Psychiatric Association, which dates back to 1844, now boasts more than 37,000 members practicing in more than 100 countries.
