NIMHANS has been actively involved in Blended training to build the Capacity and Handhold them by tele-mentoring in the area of Mental Health as well as Alcohol & Drug Addiction. The remote physician/medical officers as well as counsellors can join through their smartphone/laptop to the NIMHANS ECHO experts and discuss the challenges faced by him or her in managing the patient. With the regular mentoring, these health providers can work like “Local Experts”. The patient will receive the best specialist care, in his/her own place without travelling to big cities. We are supporting the capacity building as well as Quality Patient care for the District Mental Health Programe (NMHP) for Bihar, Chattisgarh and Tobacco training for NTCP Karnataka with collaboration of NHM of respective states. This model has been recognised by National Health Mission (NHM) Ministry of Health and Family Welfare Govt. of India.
NIMHANS will be happy to get connected to other parts of the country.
