MENTAL HEALTH IS A UNIVERSAL HUMAN RIGHT
Mental health must be squarely placed in a human rights framework to re-cast the aspiration for sound mental health as a fundamental human right.
Ensuring access to mental health services must be an obligation and responsibility of state and global organizations.

Since its humble beginnings we have come a long way to have nearly 200 members. Our members comprise of practising private psychiatrists, psychiatrists in public health system, teaching faculties from the Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behavior and post graduate trainees. We also have psychologists as our allied members.
The Society’s focus areas are enhancing academic, clinical and research capacity of its members, promoting mental health, engaging service users and mental health advocacy.
We also function as the official state branch of the Indian Psychiatric Society and, despite our small size, have demonstrated great dynamism by way of holding regular and high quality CMEs, workshops and conferences.
Besides academics, our current aims will be implementing the Mental Health Care Act 2017 in the state , Suicide Prevention, Prevention and Treatment of Substance Use and quality research activities.
