  • IPS Press Release - 16-6-2019

    Dear Patrons, IPS supports IMA call for withdrawal of nonessential medical services on June 17, 2019. We extend our support to the IMA’s clarion call for protest by wearing black ribbon/badges from June 14th to 17th and withdrawal of non-essential medical services from 6 am on 17/06/2019 to 6 am on 18/06/2019. Emergency can casualty services will remain operational. We appeal to all members of IPS to show our strong solidarity towards our doctor brothers in West Bengal and stand with them in these troubled times. We are sympathetic to the inconvenience caused by our protests to patients, but unfortunately this is the only way to make our voice heard. We once again strongly condemn the attack on Dr. Paribaha Mukherjee and pray for his speedy recovery and hope that no other doctor suffers a similar fate. Dr.Vinay Kumar  (Hon. General Secretary) Indian Psychiatric Society Dr. Mrugesh Vaishnav  (President) Indian Psychiatric Society ...

Message from the President's desk

I am grateful to everyone who wished, voted, supported & encouraged me and my campaign to contest for the post of president. I express my humble respects to all the past presidents and office bearers of Indian Psychiatric Society who through years of hard work have brought this organization to such great heights. I am privileged to be working with the current office bearers who are not only eminent psychiatrists of India but also warm, humble and emotionally charged individuals who will give new directions to the IPS. My mission is to make society audible at every level. IPS will fight for the rights of the people with Mental Illness. We will advocate for the health insurance rights of psychiatric patients. We will raise awareness and toil to remove stigma associated with Mental illness. We will strive to protect our fellow psychiatrists from medical litigation. We will usher in an era of digital mental health in our country and above all, I will strive to make IPS a true democracy, where the society is driven by the members and works for the members.

Message from the Hony General Secretary

Dear Colleagues, Greetings from the office of Hon. General Secretary and welcome to the new look IPS website! I am feeling proud that IPS is becoming a visible force and audible voice. Last year we partnered in a visible social change on LGBT issue. Our Position Statement was produced as an authentic document in Honorable Supreme Court of India and it was surprising to know that it went viral and played important role in opinion making. Our three publication is now in the international market and all are doing well. This a new year for all of us. It has come with new challenges and we are meet. The performance of all the subcommittees was excellent last year and this year I am sure,we will be able to better our record.
Our #Mental_Hai_Kya_Title_Change movement is spreading and we have got some hint that we will succeed. Long Live IPS!

Message from Ex‐President IPS, on IPS Taskforce

The Indian Psychiatric Society in 2017, constituted a Task Force on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues. The Task Force, now partially re-constituted, continues its work to endorse the stance of the Society that Homosexuality should not be considered a mental illness, much less a crime.


The Indian Psychiatric Society condemns the series of incidents of violence against doctors in different parts of country. We are deeply pained by all the acts of violence and vandalism; but the recent chain of events at Kolkata has shaken the sense of security and safety of the entire medical profession. Doctors cannot work under threats. Violence against them, under any circumstance is condemnable and unacceptable and should be dealt with punishment that is suitably harsh.

The Indian Psychiatric Society strongly condemns the brutal attack on serving doctors in Kolkata and demands immediate action against the perpetrators of the violence. It is high time to think of a "Central Medical Security Force'' to safeguard the hospitals and personnel working there.

The Indian Psychiatric Society strongly supports the steps taken by Indian Medical Association and expresses solidarity with all medical professionals under the IMA's umbrella.

Press Release - Violence against doctors


Psychodynamic treatment facilitates the rapid resolution of a broad spectrum of emotional disorders. Evidence-based psychotherapy is strongly supported by current clinical research studies. Psychotherapy interventions are specifically designed to resolve anxiety, depression, somatization and personality disorders, as well as, to alleviate a variety of self-defeating behaviours, many of which derive from unstable or troubled early life attachments.
