Welcome, by Prof Roy Abraham Kallivayalil, President :
It is my great pleasure to write to you as the WASP President. Let me appreciate the tremendous leadership provided by our Prof Tom Craig as President during 2013-16. We will continue the good work initiated by him, while charting out some new areas of activities as well. “Mental Health in a Healthy Society” is the slogan, we would like to propose for the next triennium.

We should be interested in the all-round welfare of the Society we live in! Let me look forward to your support, co-operation and guidance.
Prof Roy Abraham Kallivayalil President, World Association of Social Psychiatry
