Invitation by GERON 2023 Organizing Committee
We are delighted to invite you to the 19th Annual National Conference of Indian Association for Geriatric Mental Health – GERON 2023, to be held at Mysore on 23rd & 24th September 2023. The theme for this year’s conference is “Relationship and Caregiving in Elderly.”
As we age, the relationship between caregivers and elderly individuals becomes increasingly important. The caregiving relationship can be both fulfilling and challenging, with a significant impact on the well-being of both the caregiver and the care recipient. This year’s conference focuses on this critical topic and aims to provide a platform for experts, researchers, and practitioners to discuss the latest research and best practices in the field of geriatric mental health.
The conference will feature presentations that will explore the dynamics of caregiving in the elderly and promote healthy and positive relationships between caregivers and the elderly. Our esteemed speakers will share their knowledge and expertise on topics such as caregiver stress, caregiver burden, communication between caregivers and the elderly, and interventions that promote positive caregiving relationships. The conference venue, JSS Hospital, is located in the heart of Mysore, a beautiful city with a rich cultural heritage. The conference offers ample networking opportunities for attendees to connect and collaborate on projects related to geriatric mental health.
We look forward to welcoming you to GERON 2023 and to providing you with an enriching and informative experience.

Mysore is called the City of Palaces because of several ornate examples in the city. Among the most notable are Amba Vilas, popularly known as Mysore Palace; Jaganmohana Palace, which also serves as an art gallery; Rajendra Vilas, also known as the summer palace; Lalitha Mahal, which has been converted into a hotel; and Jayalakshmi Vilas.87–88 The palace of Mysore burned down in 1897, and the present structure was built on the same site. Amba Vilas palace exhibits an Indo-Saracenic style of architecture on the outside, but a distinctly Hoysala style in the interior. Even though the Government of Karnataka maintains the Mysore palace, a small portion has been allocated for the erstwhile royal family to live in. The Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion was constructed by Sri Chamaraja Wodeyar for his daughter Jayalakshammanni. It is now a museum dedicated to folk culture and artifacts of the royal family.
