For the first time the AsCNP organized congress between the biannual congress for ASEAN region. Our purpose is to improve the awareness and foster the level of knowledge of the colleagueaboutneuropsychopharmacology especially in South East Asia.Yogyakarta is believed to be an excellent setting to focus on discussion under the theme : “Breakthrough in Neuropsychopharmacology intervention, from ASEAN to global perspective”.

Today, neuropsychopharmacology, either in basic or clinical setting, is one of the most advance field in psychiatry. The development of clinical research and novel drugs, the current progress in molecular biology and modern neuroscience, the new nomenclature and perspective of psychotropic drugs, and still we face the challenges and difficulties in our approach to psychiatry disorders and mental health care. Moreover, as we progress through the 21st century, the challenges of integrating comorbid physical, mental and social care, altogether with primary and secondary care, are truly important. We hope that AsCNP for ASEAN congress 2019 would be the ideal platform to exchange and to promote our innovative knowledge in this field.

During the congress, the worldwide opinion leaders, especially in Asia, will share the recent innovations in their respective fields.
