A state medical specialty society founded on November 19, 1908, the Detroit Society of Neurology and Psychiatry met with the first meeting held at the Detroit Club and would serve as the voice of psychiatry in Michigan for more than a century. The society was formed from the idea of four men: Drs. Edmund A. Christian, Albert M. Barrett, Colonel Bell Burr, and David Inglis.
In 1939, the name was changed to the Michigan Society of Neurology and Psychiatry and changed again in 1964 to the Michigan Society of Psychiatry and Neurology. The last name change occurred in 1971 to the Michigan Psychiatric Society.
