It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the XI International Congress of the International Neuropsychiatric Association and the TS Srinivasan-NIMHANS Knowledge Conclave, a joint meeting in Bengaluru, India, that will take place on 15th, 16th & 17th February 2018. The 3-day event has the contemporary theme “Neuropsychiatry- A Global Approach” the core of our effort being to identify and discuss important transcultural issues in Neuropsychiatry. That the meeting is taking place in India makes it extremely relevant, as “Neuropsychiatry” remains a little known specialty in many parts of the developing world. The International Neuropsychiatric Association would like to take this opportunity to put on display the cutting edge of global knowledge in this field and its relevance to clinical practice, research and policy in different parts of the world. That the meeting will be in NIMHANS is also fortuitous; NIMHANS being India’s premier institution guides research and policy with respect to mental health and neurosciences in India, a country with the world’s second largest population and today the world’s fastest developing economy.
This congress will be of great relevance to professionals across disciplines. Apart from those who practice, teach & research neuropsychiatry or have a special interest in the field, behavioural neurologists, biological psychiatrists, clinical neurologists and psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists, rehabilitators, public health & epidemiology professionals, nurses, social work professionals, complimentary and alternative health professionals and all others in healthcare interested in mental health and neurosciences, will be warmly welcomed to this forum; to exchange ideas and contribute to the global knowledge pool at this expanding and exciting interface.
We expect to have several types of academic and cultural activities taking place as part of this enriched program.
