Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from the office of Hony General Secretary.

It's my proud privilege to write a few words in this special supplement of Indian Journal of Psychiatry, which embodies abstracts of CME, workshops, symposia, free papers and posters submitted for ANCIPS 2019. Being a member of the Scientific Committee of the IPS, I must express my sincere gratitude to all the speakers who accepted our request and to presenters who chose this mega scientific annual event of Indian Psychiatric Society for presenting their research.

I have been part of the team which conceptualized not only an enriching but also an interesting scientific programme with 20 plenary and invited lectures, 200 symposia and workshops, and more than 580 oral and poster presentations. This supplement of Indian Journal of Psychiatry (IJP) will help you in choosing the session or presentation you would like to attend. I am sure you will find it useful not only during the conference but also afterwards. The content of this supplement will be available on the website of IJP after the conference. Our members who are not attending the conference can also access this supplement to update themselves.

I take this opportunity to congratulate our new Hony Editor Prof Om Prakash Singh for ensuring punctuality of publication and sincerely working for further improving the quality of the scientific content. I sincerely thank all the members of new IJP Editorial Board for doing a wonderful job. I am sure IJP will achieve much higher impact factor soon.

Running this high office of IPS and exploring new dimensions has been very smooth for me because of great leadership of President Dr Ajit Bhide and support from President-Elect Dr Mrugesh Vaishnav and Hony Treasurer Dr. Mukesh Jagiwala. I am grateful to all of them and also to Imm. Past President Brig MSVK Raju, Imm. Past Hon General Secretary Dr Gautam Saha and Imm. Past Editor Dr TSS Rao for handing over a great legacy and guidance in times of need. I am thankful to all the EC Members for their help and support and the Organizing Committee led by Dr P K Dalal and Dr Hemant Naidu for funding the publication of this supplement.

Vinay Kumar
