The foundation for Pakistani Psychiatrists in North America was first laid down by the legendary psychiatrist from Pakistan, Professor Syed Arshad Husain, who has received several awards and honors for serving disaster hit areas throughout the world. In 1975, when there were a few psychiatrists from Pakistan, he started a Pakistani psychiatrist group named, “Pakistan Psychiatric Society in North America.”  Initially the society’s activities were primarily compromised of annual meetings, both locally and from overseas organized at the annual meetings of American psychiatric Association (APA).
