Do you have patients suffering from treatment-resistance in your clinic?

Do many of your patients rely too heavily on medication and
miss out on a true state of wellness?

Do you believe there’s more to the story than what you were taught about the causes of mental illness, but you don’t have a comprehensive approach to help all of your patients reach their highest potential? It’s frustrating.

I feel energized to work with some of the most challenging patients and diagnoses because my theoretical framework to explain mental health has been expanded and deepened. I have more tools to help them. I am looking forward to implementing new treatment strategies and feel more confident that I can use these cutting edge treatments.

Lindsay Burke, NPBoulder, CO

From this experience I feel much more confident about my ability to address and treat the underlying causes of mental illness and feel more hope about the direction of the field of psychiatry. It also has been a wonderful way to feel more connected to like-minded individuals.

Lana Benedek, MDLos Angeles, CA

The fellowship has been a wonderful experience, providing a unique opportunity to develop knowledge from leaders in the field.

Brooke Ayden, MDSt. Louis, MO

This program has been a great way to meet practitioners of various backgrounds and experience. I feel that I have joined a community that will provide support and education as I learn more about integrative psychiatry.

Sinmi Bamgbose, MDSan Francisco, CA

This program provides a community of providers who are deeply caring and full of purpose.

Hisla Bates, MDBrooklyn, NY

It has been wonderful to hear from mentors in the field and continue building up a toolbox from which to help patients.

Nishi Bhopal, MDSausilito, CA

This information was what I was hoping to get out of residency in psychiatry, but did not. I feel my toolbox is expanding rapidly and it is exciting. I also feel a sense of renewed excitement about practicing medicine.

Catherine BoydSanta Fe, NM

Great way to meet others interested in and doing integrative psychiatry while starting the journey of learning techniques to apply to patient care.

Erica BuchalterSt. Louis, MO

It was wonderful to be with a group of like-minded people. There were people from all over doing very different things in their careers. People are searching for integrative new approaches and not being defined by the old paradigm. There was a lot of useful practical information as well as an emphasis on the importance of self-care.

Andrea Carlsen, MDHuntington, NY

I feel a renewed energy to continue my work in psychiatry and addiction and to improve my own self-care and fulfillment.

Andrea Conway, NPDuxbury, MA

You became a psychiatric provider to heal others.

To eliminate resolvable mental health issues.

Conventional psychiatric techniques focus on symptom reduction, which has a time and place, but it will only get your patients so far.

Too many people never fully recover.

Many patients end up stagnating, believing their lackluster response to traditional psychiatric care is as good as it gets. They don’t realize there is another way to achieve high levels of stability, and, ultimately, a deeply gratifying experience of life.

What you weren’t taught in medical or graduate school, residency, or a fellowship program is that psychiatric symptoms arise from root causes, and patients are in desperate need of a new approach to address them.

The hard truth about mental illness

The field of psychiatry has achieved many important advances in technology and pharmacology over the last few decades. But despite these advances in psychiatry, it has become painfully clear the traditional approach is failing.


Depression is now the leading cause of disability worldwide and is predicted by 2030 to be the leading cause of the global burden of disease by the World Health Organization.


300 million people in the world suffer from depression, of which a third are not responding to conventional treatments. That’s 100 million people in desperate need for a better standard of care. 

1 in 5

adults experience some form of mental illness each year, and of these patients many have symptoms so severe their illness dramatically reduces their quality of life, limiting what they can and cannot do.[1][2]

People aren’t getting better...

In fact, the patients who are resigned to simply “living” with serious mental illness because they’ve been unable to find relief, are dying an average of 25 years earlier, largely due to treatable medical conditions.[3] It’s a sobering reality.

You already know the challenge of providing healthcare services to adults with a mental health condition, and it should come as no surprise that only 41 percent of patients receive any treatment at all.[4] There is a growing and urgent need for more practitioners in this field, with a skillset, expertise and confidence to offer a better level of care.

“I spent 13 years at NIMH really pushing on the neuroscience and genetics of mental disorders, and when I look back…I don’t think we moved the needle in reducing suicide, reducing hospitalizations, improving recovery for the tens of millions of people who have mental illness.”

Tom Insel MD, former Provost of Harvard University, American neuroscientist and former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) from 2002 until November 2015

There has to be a better way.

A way to help your patients overcome their mental illness for good.
A way to help your patients achieve a meaningful and fulfilling life.
A way to help your patients break through treatment-resistance.

It’s time to change the way psychiatric care is provided, for those who need it most.

Our goal is to equip psychiatric providers with the tools and expertise to confidently practice at the forefront of mental health care. Integrative psychiatry promises dramatic change for your patients’ lives as well as a path to greater career fulfillment for you as the provider.

In your heart, you already know there is a deeper level of wellbeing available for your patients, it’s time to introduce you to an evidence-based institution on the forefront of making this happen.

Shannon Darling, PMHNP – IPI Fellowship Alumni

Your patients will thank you.

Their families will thank you.

“What I found most engaging was learning about so many other potential causes for mental illness, especially as an Internal Medicine doctor.”

Program Overview

The key to effective integrative psychiatry treatment

Instead of tackling symptoms alone, an integrative psychiatric practitioner makes a proactive leap towards holistic patient care. There are three core areas to guide a patient from illness into a genuine state of wellness…


Resolve the complex web of underlying physical causes with functional medicine techniques


Connect psychiatric symptoms with your patient’s belief systems and trauma history


Improve outcomes by addressing relationships, food choices, and other ecological factors

This is your chance to become a masterful integrative healthcare provider, learning from the leading experts in integrative psychiatry, so you too can become a leader in this field while you position yourself as the go-to-resource in your community for cutting-edge psychiatric care.

Highly effective training environment covering the subject matter in detail

Get informed with cutting-edge psychiatry and learn proven techniques
Designed specifically for the busy practitioner who wants to learn at their own pace
Join a vibrant community energized to revolutionize the field

The IPI Fellowship Program has been designed by practitioners for practitioners, so you can trust that what you learn is clinically applicable. This program, unlike others, is completely free of industry bias.

Sacramento, CA

Join a learning community unlike any other

The IPI Fellowship Program is a one-of-a-kind training, offering the most effective means to educate yourself, so you can provide better care to your patients.

If you’re sick of…

Piecing together disjointed topics from conferences spanning several years

Investing a lot of money on continuing education, only to get tidbits of information

Not knowing how to actually implement the learnings from a briefly mentioned idea

Trying to identify the bias behind a particular trainer or speaker’s recommendations

Spending time in functional medicine programs that barely touch on mental health

The IPI Fellowship Program is for you.

No other conference, training session or program even comes close.

Inside, you’ll discover a wealth of learnings on integrative psychiatry, all in one place, along with a ready and eager faculty with decades of experience to answer every question you have.

And best of all you will do it with like-minded peers who are eager to expand their knowledge base and build community along the way.
