Mental Health And Behavioural Sciences

Stress is primarily caused by a disturbance in biological functions or due to the incapability of an individual to cope up with minor problems in work, home or social environment. Growing competition, shrinking support networks is one of the leading factors, which is causing a behavioral problem, especially amongst the urban populace.

The Department of Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences is manned by experienced mental health professionals in the fields of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology to cater to the needs of a diverse population.We are the first to offer care to individuals who seek treatment from minor stress and interpersonal problems that can further lead to severe neurobehavioural/neurocognitive and psychiatric problems. We also lend support to people who lead a normal and well-adjusted life but are witnessing problems in other walks of life.                  

We are fully equipped to attend to the mental health needs of children, adolescents, adults and geriatric population. The Division of Psychiatry provides consultation to patients of all age groups as well as liaisons consultation for all the departments especially Department of Pediatrics and Department of Neurology. 

Apart from the General Psychiatry services, the division also specializes in a treatment of Alcoholism, Substance Abuse Disorders, and Psycho-sexual Disorders. It is also equipped to administer Modified Electro-Convulsive Therapy (MECT) and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS).

Our Department is fully equipped with all psychological test materials to do various psychological assessments relating to children and adults including Comprehensive Neuropsychological Assessment. Apart from the assessment and psychological management of Intellectual Disability, Developmental Disorders, Emotional and Behavioral Problems in children and adolescents, the clinical psychologists have extensive experience in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Inter-Personal Therapy (IPT), Family Therapy and Marital Therapy. We also have the facility for Biofeedback Therapy.
