icare Brain Injury
Psychiatry Program

The Project

The icare Brain Injury Psychiatry Program (iBIPP) is a world-first brain injury training program for psychiatrists, bridging the gap between mental health and brain injury rehabilitation. Funded by icare NSW, the project was launched in 2019 as a partnership between the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, the University of Sydney Brain and Mind Centre, and Northern Sydney Local Health District.

The project was developed in response to the significant demand and ongoing need for psychiatrists experienced in the area of brain injury to be able to provide brain injury-specific psychiatry services.
