About Us
The Board


Dear PRCP colleagues,

It is a great honor and pleasure to serve you as the new president of PRCP after the two successful years of Prof. Helen Herrman’s tenure.
As you are aware, PRCP was founded in 1980 with the motto to be the voice of Asia-Pacific Psychiatry. PRCP aims to support the improvement of education and research in psychiatry through greater professional collaboration in the Asia-Pacific Region.
To achieve this goal, PRCP will provide more channels for communication among its members by setting up special-interest groups (SIG), which will be accessible through our website in the near future. For each SIG, you will be able to contact our officers, board members and colleagues who share common interests directly. This way, many networks of Asia-Pacific researchers from various areas will be created. Therefore, our members will more concrete benefits than only a hard copy of the Asia-Pacific Psychiatry Journal and a platform to meet in the next biennial conference.
Additionally, PRCP will strive to expand beyond our geographical borders by trying to persuade more psychiatrists from Latin and South America to join our organization.
In a nutshell, our strategy for the next 2 years we will follow the acronym, PRCP:
   P is for Participation
   R is for Responsibility
   C is for Collaboration
   P is for Pacific Rim countries
So we will focus on participation and collaboration among psychiatrists from Pacific Rim countries, and we hope each of us will take wholeheartedly to the task they have been assigned.
Lastly, I would like to thank you all again for your kind support and invite you to work together over the next two years to make the voice of Asia-Pacific Psychiatry heard around this world. I wish you all enjoy the upcoming Christmas and a Happy New Year 2017
With my best wishes and personal regards,
Prof. Pichet Udomratn, M.D.
