IPS President’s Message

Dr. NN Raju,
President, Indian Psychiatric Society,

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great previledge and honor to lead IPS for the year 2022. I thank you for all your support. Despite the continuing pandemic of the COVID-19, the Indian Psychiatric society has indeed performed a commendable work, in the field of academics, research and advocacy under the able leadership of the outgoing Hon. Office Bearers of the year 2021. I congratulate them for a succesful term in the IPS. 

However, the time has come to move onward with zeal and passion for the future development of the society. For the year 2022, I request support of each and every member of the society to come forward to action.

Let us all work together and make IPS a force that dispells stigma and usher in the new era of mental health.

Thanking you
Dr. NN Raju – President IPS.
