It is my privilege to extend a warm invitation to you for 22nd National Psychiatric Conference, 2017. This Conference aims to bring together not only, National and International Mental Health Professionals to discuss various issues of mental illness but also, experts from all fields of Health and Social Sciences in an attempt to foster Stakeholder Partnerships among Psychiatry and other fields of Health and Social Sciences because I believe that is the true way forward for promoting mental health, devising prevention strategies and achieving sustainable development in the neglected field of psychiatry. The theme of the conference is thus “Promotion of Mental Health & Prevention Strategies”.
The event will be devoted to discussing ways of bridging the gap between mental and physical healthcare. I believe that it is not just psychiatrists that have a role to play in uplifting the mentally challenged community, but you too are a stakeholder. Regardless of what field that you belong to. You too have a role to play.

Dear All, It is with great pleasure that I extend my warmest regards and best wishes to all who are gathered for 22nd National Psychiatric Conference and I welcome this opportunity to commend the Pakistan Psychiatric Society, especially its Hyderabad chapter for hosting this year’s national conference and for dedicating their time, energy and resources to making sure that the conference turns out to be the great success.

I speak to you all today, not in my capacity as the President, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Chapterof the Brain Trust, the President, World Congress of Muslim Psychiatrist & Psychologist or as the Chairman, Policy Research Institute of Mental Health of Minorities, United Kingdombut as a fellow Pakistani who wonders what kind of tomorrow, are we striving to offer to those battlingmental health problems?The Islamic Republic of Pakistan, was found on the basis of Unity, Faith & Discipline. Back in the day immediately following our inception, the world looked to us, to live up to certain standards ofmoral integrity and humanity, to involve ourselves deeply in moving humankind, towards a more humane world for all.

We talked big about how all people are created equal.That was the basic principles to which we were committedas a Pakistani nation. That is the foundation on which our system ofIslamic Shariah rests and that is what ought to distinguish us in the eyes of theworld.However, sadly enough, we are falling short of all our promises, especially towards the millions of Pakistani people with mental health problems, who are searching for hope of a better future.

They, our fellow countrymen challenged with mental ailments, are our brothers in Islam, ourfellow human beings on this earth.What kind of tomorrow, will they have in Pakistan? If we, the people of this Pak-Sar-Zameen do not shoulder their burden and do not strive for them. We have a great responsibility towards them and I in my message wish to reiterate how important it is to fulfill that responsibility.

Iurge all of the delegates attending this momentousconferenceto make play their part in crafting a better future for us all and adhere to our duty to Allah, the almighty and the most kind & merciful, and to our country, Pakistan, to help our brothers & sisters in need, the people with mental health problems.

This conference, I am sure, will serve as a step in the right direction. By promoting mental health and building partnerships with not just the allied fields of medicine but, with the society as a whole, this conference shall offer hope of a better and brighter future for those battling mental health problems. I pray that may this conference be a positive experience for all.

Thank you.

It gives me immense pleasure to write these few lines for this wonderful event organized by Pakistan Psychiatric Society. The tradition of organizing yearly conference is with the theme that research and academics shall be promoted in Pakistan according to best possible recognized guidelines internationally.

As President Pakistan Psychiatric Society, my executives and I are trying to implement, and devise system that is impartial and promising. We have conducted multiple liaison with all the international organizations to promote mental health.

We conducted fair electronic elections, this is the first time in Pakistan that any society had electronic elections, it was to ensure, fair and clean elections.

We are trying to designate two new seats in the executive body, one related to publications and other to develop continued professional development.

We have also started social media campaign to reduce stigma in society related to mental health issues by the name of “Lets Fight Together”. We are also trying to launch other campaigns to enhance the awareness among the doctors and general public regarding the mental illnesses and disorders.

We as members of Pakistan Psychiatric Society (PPS) help all who come to us for care to maintain and improve their health. We as work force of mental health in Pakistan work with people to minimize the effects of distress, disease and disability of people with mental ailments. We do this by pursuing excellence in care, research and education in a wide range of places.

In the spirit of our founders, we care in the example of our Beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and in keeping with our values. We attend to the wholeness of each person – body, mind and spirit. We are a life-affirming organization, nurturing a living spirituality through all stages of life, health, suffering and death. We ensure ongoing ethical reflection.

We in PPS advocate for those who are vulnerable and without a voice. We actively pursue and build partnerships to create a better mental health care system.

Values are the means by which we work together and serve others. We do our best to demonstrate these values in all actions and decisions, no matter how large or how small. We measure our individual and collective performance in relation to our values.

It is indeed a pleasure to give this message on the occasion of the 22nd National conference by PPS to be held on 17-19 October 2017 at Hyderabad, a historical city of Pakistan. The theme of the Conference is “Promotion of Mental Health-Building Partnership (“Zahni Sehat Ka Ferogh-Tameer-e-Shirakat dari”. Keeping in mind the prevalence and the commonality of sin, bad, criminality, and the man-made disasters –war & terrors, globally and locally, this theme of the conference is very appropriate indeed as this is the ultimate aim & objective to promote mental health at all levels and by all means through holistic partnership locally and globally. In this changing world of technology & electronic and social media, where, by and large, everyone is directly or indirectly, the victim of harm or witness of breaking of the law and order/ security issues & encountering the threats all the time, it is quite stimulating subject to sensitize the concerned corners for practical steps by incorporating the legacy of knowledge given by our respected seniors and the technological awareness by the juniors to make it a successful event. The aim and objectives of health professionals is also on the same lines to replace the illness/disease/ disorder by the best optimal health, physical and mental, through partnership. With the valuable participation of health professionals, this mega-academic gathering will give us an opportunity to learn from the wisdom of senior health professionals and the smart bio-mechatronic capabilities of our youngsters. Replacement of inappropriate use of technology (cellphone/mobile, tablet, notebook, laptop, IPad, android, WhatsApp) with correct and judicial/ rational use as these are available to most of our population especially youngsters. This technique can be used multi-dimensionally between health care providers and the general population of the global community to promote the mental health. Besides plenary session and invited talks by the eminent speakers, there is rich scientific program in the field of mental health, behavioural Sciences and allied health disciplines. As a member of organizing team we have put our sincere & ethical efforts to make the best possible arrangements and hope that with the valuable participation by various delegates, this will be a successful event. This conference will enhance our skill by incorporating latest interventions through promotion of health and its impact on the population, and in this way we can replace and defeat disease with multidimensional/ multidisciplinary team including involvement of caregivers. On behalf of the Advisory Committee & as the President Elect of PPS, I welcome all the delegates and pay my best regards & warmest greetings to all the participants. Jazak'Allah Khair… Iqbal Afridi

It is heartening to know that so many illustrious scholars are coming together to grapple with the problems that beset society. In the case of Pakistan specifically, a country protected by its nuclear deterrent in a region rich in ancient cultural achievement, the delegates could move closer to the goal of overall mental health in the nation by recognising that the intellectual potential of 57% of the population, namely women, must be vigorously developed and harvested. The example provided by that eminent surgeon Prof Rihana Ali Shah, head of orthopaedic surgery at Karachi Medical & Dental College, Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, is a glowing beacon of excellence lighting the way forward to what can be done.
If this grand aim could be accepted nationwide and implemented, I believe Pakistan could eventually become a reflection of paradise on Earth.

22NDNATIONAL PSYCHIATRIC CONFERENCE
THE COOL BREEZE OF HOPE FROM HYDERABAD


Hyderabad is famous for its cool breeze. The mental health scene in Pakistan will soon experience this breeze. Come November, illustrious mental health professionals from across the country and sons of the soil from abroad will converge in Hyderabad to attend the 22nd National Psychiatric Conference of Pakistan Psychiatric Society.The Conference will propagate the theme of Promotion of Mental Health-Building Partnerships.
Never before has a nation needed mental health promotion more. The people of Pakistan have been challenged by persistent trauma, terror and divisiveness for almost two decades now. The rich scientific programme drawn by Prof Moin Ansari and Lt. Col RamzanMaharwith their able team aims to address this need of the nation.
It is only through promotion of mental health, and by building partnerships across professions, and disciplines that Pakistanis can regain their lost sense of well being, and start to live in unison and hope.
Hope indeed is the coolest of breezes, and where else should it blow from, but Hyderabad.

'Hope' is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops - at all

"The war is too important to be left to the soldiers alone." In the same vein mental health is too important to be left to psychiatrists alone. In a country where 24 million people suffer from psychiatric illnesses, and we aren't even close to the 10,000 psychiatrists that this country needs, garnering fruitful partnerships is indispensable for the cause of mental health. On the academic front psychiatrists need to pave the way for the development of behavioral sciences as a significant force in medical education. In the clinical domain we need to empower non-psychiatrists by trainings and diploma programs to deal with priority illnesses. Additionally, we need to synchronize with clinical psychology programs to share the burden. We should aspire to raise the level of our research contributions to the global pool of knowledge; international collaborations would be critical in this respect. This research would inform our practice and most importantly help synthesize relationships with policy-makers and inform the decision making process at the highest level. The day we realize, and then actualize, that mental health is not the hegemony of any one specialty and that is requires a collective crusade for us to be able to promote mental health, and prevent and treat mental illnesses, will be the day we fulfill the responsibility our nation expects of us.



LT. COL. DR. M. RAMZAN MAHAR,

Chairman, Scientific Committee
Consultant Psychiatrist, CMH, Hyderabad

I welcome you all to come be a witness to the start of a new era of cooperation and successful liaison between psychiatry and all allied fields of medicine as the 22nd National Psychiatric Conference bridges the gap between mental and physical healthcare.
Scientific Committee of 22ndNational Psychiatric Conference is committed to enhance the scientific knowledge to deliver an enriching experience to the delegates.We, at the 22nd National Psychiatric Conference believe that it is not just the mental healthcare professionals that have a role to play in uplifting the mentally challenged community, but you too are a stakeholders. Regardless of what profession that you belong to.



DR QADIR BAKHSH

MBE, M.Sc., PhD.

Mental Health is a key concern among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. Sadly even in developed counties, it is not treated at par with physical illnesses. It is also a global phenomenon that those with mental disorders rarely seek support due to the stigma associated with it. I feel privileged to be invited to participate in the National Conference of Pakistan Psychiatric Society. The leadership of the Society and the organising committee merit a huge gratitude for gathering together national and international mental health professionals in order to deliberate collectively and devise effective means of enhancing awareness of mental health concerns and challenges facing Pakistan. Above all the Conference aims to avail this opportunity to impregnate contemporarymechanisms to articulate a sort of 'mental health care charter'fordesigning,developing, and delivering a 'state of the art' service provision, entailing collaboration, sharing resources and expertise and partnerships working, involving the services users themselves, amongst all others. Academic excellence and research culture enhancement is envisioned in the pursuit of desired objectives. Pakistan with its very diverse 'user community' representing diverse socio-cultural, linguistic and geographical backgrounds, with distinct 'value and belief systems' presents a huge challengenot only for mental health professionals but all those who have the responsibility for alleviating poverty and reaching hard to reach population in rural Pakistan. I sincerely wish the organisers all the success in achieving their OBJECTIVES.

I am very grateful to the organizers of the 22nd National Psychiatric Conference and very much look forward to attending and making my contributions. This conference is very timely and the need for a common approach to solutions and collaboration relating to mental health has never been greater.br/> We live in strange and confusing times. As a society we have more affluence than ever, yet so many of us experience an emptiness and longing, or dissatisfaction, or meaninglessness and we are looking for new and innovative answers to life's problems. Many feel stuck in their lives, and feel as if they're held back from achieving their full potential.br/> Some needing resolution to their relationship or family issues that have impacted their lives, to address health and well-being issues, or to resolve issues with fears or low self-esteem. Many need help to clear depression, which is so common today. Some want to connect deeper with their inner self and are looking for spiritual advancement and liberation.br/> The conference will enable participants to learn from eminent national and international speakers about their work and experiences and through engaged discussions in small groups and questions."

Thank you so much.

It is honour for us to arrange National Psychiatric Conference at Hyderabad after 10 Years. In 2007, National Psychiatric Conference was arranged at Hyderabad in which 78 psychiatrists from all over Pakistan, attended. That conference was held under the chairmanship of Dr. Abdul Hameed Memon (myself)

We have received very good response for the conference and many research papers, articles and poster presentation are received. Due to hard work and frequent meetings of organizing committee under the chairmanship of Prof. Moin Ahmed Ansari, in sha Allah, this event will become highly successful. It will give knowledge about psychiatry, psychology and behavioural sciences to the students, junior doctors and general public. Now a days every scientific subject depends upon research and research only and we will get benefit from papers of our colleagues from abroad and from other parts of our country, Pakistan.

I am fully hopeful and pray for the success of this coming conference on 17-19 November, 2017 at Hyderabad.

Thank you

PAKISTAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION



Pakistan Medical Association Karachi (PMA) is a platform that is open to all those doctors who are willing to make a positive difference in the health sector of Pakistan.

The Pakistan Medical Association was established in 1948 in Dacca. It was inaugurated by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

It was later moved to Karachi to provide opportunity for its rapid development and growth, which became its permanent headquarters.

In Karachi a detailed Constitution was drafted and approved. The Association was registered under the Registration of Societies Act XXI of 1960 and branches were established all over Pakistan.

The first All-Pakistan Medical Conference was inaugurated by Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan at Karachi. A beginning was made by inviting medical delegates from different countries of the world to attend our Biennial Conference. A tradition was laid down for international cooperation which has since grown with the passage of time.

It was during this early period that Sir Alexander Flemming, the discoverer of Penicillin, visited Pakistan as the guest of the Pakistan Medical Association. The first honorary membership of the Association was conferred on him. Sir Alexander Flemming gave a talk on “How Pakistani Children can grow to be the Research Workers of tomorrow” at Rainbow Court Y.M.C.A.

In 1951 the PMA started its publication Journal of Pakistan Medical Association (JPMA) as an official organ of the Pakistan Medical Association.

Pakistan Medical Association is an active member of confederation of Medical Association of Asia and Oceania. Pakistan Medical Association has always taken active and constructive part in international health and medical activities. In 1961 at the request of British Medical Association mutual affiliation between British Medical Association and Pakistan Medical Association was achieved. In November 1966 a joint meeting of British and Pakistan Medical Association was held at Karachi. The Pakistan Medical Association was an active member of the Commonwealth Medical Association and took keen interest in its development and growth. The Association has taken active part in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th World Conference on medical education.



PAKISTAN ASSOCIATION OF COGNITIVE THERAPISTS



CBT has proved to be highly effective evidence based psychotherapy in the world in a range of conditions, from promotion of mental health to treatment of various psychiatric disorders, its education, training and practice. However, in Pakistan the use of CBT is limited, restricted and unstructured. This poses an ethical question to all mental health professionals here as to why our population has been deprived so far the availability of such a popular and efficacious intervention. This is especially true in the present scenario when the deluge of pessimism and negativism arising from incessant waves of terrorism, poverty and other stressors threatens the nation; one can't withhold the precious life jackets of knowledge and skills, for any reason, from people sinking into depression or other psychological problems.

The situation shall parallel the ethical dilemma of not providing highly effective antibiotics or hormonal replacements to the acutely ill patients. The question of acquisition and delivery of CBT therefore, becomes an ethical compulsion and national duty to all of us. PACT thus comes in to existence by the efforts of a group of highly motivated and selfless people to not only try to cover the lost time in terms of training and services but also provide a platform for indigenous research and collaboration with national and international organizations.



PAKISTAN ACADEMY OF FAMILY PHYSICIANS



PAFP is the biggest non political organization of the doctors who do general practice at their private clinics and hospitals.
