Welcome to the 66th Annual National Conference of the Indian Psychiatric Society from 16th – 19th January 2014 at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi, Pune.
It's been 12 years since Pune played host to ANCIPS. Pune had proud privilege of hosting ANCIPS as many as 4 times viz. 1950, 1958 ,1979 & 2001. Looking back, much has changed in the world of Psychiatry and in Pune city. We realize that every year ANCIPS is getting bigger and better & Pune ANCIPS 2014 will see a record attendance.
The Theme of the conference will be “Mental Health, Media and Legislation: Bridging the Gap”. We will have experts discussing this topic during the theme sessions. This year has seen India troubled by violence against women. Effective legislation has so far eluded us. Also the media has played a dominant role in publicising such crimes in every corner of India. The people have become wary of the sensationalism carried by the media under the garb of “Breaking News”
