President's Message - March 2011

Date: 1 March 2011

Greetings to my fellow colleagues.

We are now reintroducing our newsletter in a new and improved format this time around. I have to thank our Young Psychiatrists Section for this. It has been their hard work to ensure that this get done. I hope you find it exciting and contribute to the newsletter in anyway. We welcome articles, points of view, humour and letters.

The committee is busy with the planning of both the CINP and MCPM meetings and I hope these will be well attended by our members. The MCPM is important as we plan to have an extra ordinary general meeting to discuss the patron of the association as well as issues related to the property. I hope members will make themselves available on that date.

We are also updating our database of members and this can soon be done online. So, please look at our website and get into the relevant section to ensure that your particulars are current.

We will be organising a Depression Awareness Day this 18th March 2011; in Kuala Lumpur. Dr. Hazli is busy now working with the press to ensure that we have enough coverage for that day.

Please also remember to check on our website as it is being regularly updated for the benefit of all us. Feel free to email us information, educational materials and articles that you wish to publish in MPA’s website http://www.psychiatry-malaysia.org to be shared with your fellow members and the public as well as event details of any upcoming events that you know of. Please email to info@psychiatry-malaysia.org.

Remember also the other two websites for our ejournals i.e. www.ejournal.psychiatry-malaysia.org as well as The ASEAN Journal of Psychiatry.

Lastly, do not forget to browse through the section on the REACH workshop and complete the CME at the end. There will be one CME point awarded for each completed module.

Best regards,

Dr Abdul Kadir Abu Bakar
President
Malaysian Psychiatric Association
