Neuropsychological deficits are common in psychiatric patients. There is a growing interest in these deficits in recent years and neuropsychology in psychiatric settings is getting increasingly important. The FNP was founded in June 2007 in Münsterlingen, CH, to promote and advance qualified neuropsychological diagnostic and therapy in psychiatric settings. The FNP wants to promote increased communication among neuropsychologists and other professionals. The organization is actively devoted to lobby activities.
