The Functional Neurological Disorder Society is devoted to improving lives of patients with a functional neurological disorder. Our goals are to increase awareness and education. The Society is multidisciplinary including neurology, psychiatry, psychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation medicine, ophthalmology, neuro-otology and others. We welcome members in all these categories.
The Society is fully cooperative with other professional organizations, such as the World Federation of Neurology, the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS), the American Epilepsy Society, the American Neuropsychiatric Association, and the British Neuropsychiatric Association. We are grateful for their support as well as support from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health.
Hit the Membership tab to see the Founding members. There is still time to become a Founding Member, but regular members are also welcome. Hit the About Us tab to meet the Society officers and Board Members.
We originally planned an inaugural meeting of the Society for June 2020, but have had to postpone due to the pandemic. We are currently organizing a variety of educational events that will be available on the internet. While some of these will be freely available, all the educational materials will be available only to members. We are currently posting the lectures from the 3rd “preliminary” meeting that was held in Edinburgh in 2017. That meeting was a great success and the lectures were outstanding. Indeed, it was the success of that meeting that inspired the organization of the Society.
We hope to have you as a member and look forward to greeting you soon through some of our live educational events.
