President's Message

It’s a great privilege and honour to scribble this invite in the 75th official year of the Indian Psychiatric Society for its 75th Annual Conference. It gives a great feeling when you think that the flow of time is full of platinum glitter, but this feeling is not a gift. We have earned it bit by bit by a small-stepped journey of education, research, and service to the ailing humanity. Our elders have toiled profusely to soften and meld the stony darkness ahead and hence, we must regard this platinum glitter as a source of inspiration to meet the challenges in years to come. Considering the past, present and future of this glorious journey we have chosen an apt theme for the 75th ANCIPS – PSYCHIATRIC CARE: PROBLEMS, PROGRESS & PROSPECTS.

It’s true that history is made by effort, but often chance factors play their role and add some more elements of surprise to the memorable moments. We cannot forget the deadly COVID-Crisis which has left its sore footprints on memories of humankind. It played spoilsport for many IPS events for nearly 2 years, and we were forced to have our first post-COVID fully in person ANCIPS in the temple city of Bhubaneswar, and now we are going to meet in God’s own country for the historic 75th ANCIPS.

Platinum Jubilee ANCIPS in India’s greenest land! We are going to make history against the backdrop of nature’s mystery. It’s a lifetime occasion for all of us to be part of it. Please join not only to celebrate this platinum occasion, but also to cherish the past, examine the present, and make promises and plans for the future. Rest assured; the scientific program will be befitting to the occasion and the organising team lead by Dr Joseph Varghese and Dr Anoop Vincent is highly enthusiastic to set a new benchmark of world-famous Kerala hospitality.

Please register as an early bird to avail the maximum discount and help the organising team serve you better.

Long Live IPS!

Hon. General Secretary’s Message

Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

It is time for us to look forward to congregate once again at Annual National Conference of IPS (ANCIPS) that is being held at Kochi, in Kerala state in 2024.

Kochi, also known as Cochin, is one of the most picturesque destinations on the southwest coast line of Kerala. An all-weather harbour and a grand seascape mark it as the “Queen of the Arabian Sea”.

Post pandemic, ANCIPS 2024 will give a chance to make us come together seeking the warmth of professional exchanges with kindred souls from across the world. It will also give us an opportunity to share our thoughts to march ahead with firm steps in tandem to deliver quality mental health service to our people.

The organising committee headed by Dr Joseph Vargese and Dr. Anoop Vincent is working hard to make ANCIPS 2024 an unforgettable aesthetic and intellectual experience for us all.
