Greetings from Helen Herrman, President-Elect PRCP

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am honoured to be designated PRCP President-Elect and appreciate the opportunities to work together with you. There is a big job ahead as PRCP continues to play a leadership role in the region in the reform of psychiatric care: including support and advocacy for prevention, early intervention and recovery in collaboration with primary health care.

The College has a fine history of enhancing collaboration and knowledge exchange among colleagues and countries in the region. Its focus is education and research. In the years ahead we anticipate more of this and reaching out to colleagues and organisations within and beyond the region, including those in psychiatry and other disciplines, as well as partnering with the service users and family carers who wish to work with us.

I commend to you our Journal, Asia Pacific Psychiatry (APPSY) published by Wiley Blackwell. APPSY is in its fifth year of publication and cited by ISI Thomson. It is rapidly becoming a voice for the region, complementing the role of the several fine national society journals.

I also look forward to seeing you at our next Congress in Vancouver in October 2014. It is in full preparation and shaping up to be a memorable and unmissable event.

Helen Herrman
Melbourne, Australia
