It is the fundamental duty of any professional body of doctors to put in place a framework of uniform clinical practice that is based not only on scientifically obtained evidence available from all parts of the world but also on evidence obtained from research carried out in home country. Since 2005 the Indian Psychiatric Society has been providing systematically developed patient care strategies to its members for effective clinical decision making and delivery of care that is comparable to globally current standards.

The present compilation of Clinical Practice Guidelines, touching upon a broad gamut of conditions including Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorders, Depression, OCD, sleep disorders and sexual dysfunctions, will cater to a major chunk of clinical load that a psychiatrist generally encounters in practice. The guidelines will definitely spare the harried psychiatrists from the time and effort spent in obtaining needed information from various sources.

The exertions of the team headed by Prof Shiv Gautam, Prof Ajit Avasthi and Dr Sandeep Grover manifesting in the form of clinical practice guidelines are ample testimony of their tenacious commitment to excellence and therefore need to be commended in full measure.
