The Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS), recognizes the vital role of emotional health at all stages of the pandemic and in all groups of population. The emotional impact of the behavioral changes the population is forced to make, the care of the persons experiencing various forms of emotional distress due to stress and the care of pre-existing mental disorders needs to be addressed.

The IPS and its members are at the service of the nation at this challenging time; to minimize emotional distress, strengthen governmental interventions, and to maximize the emotional strength of the population. We look forward to working hand in hand and in partnership with the people, the Government, and with the academia world over.
