International Training and Teaching

There are not enough trained psychiatrists in India to meet the recommended ratio, which is one psychiatrist per 200000 people. The practical way to fill this gap is to train general practitioners, nurses, psychologists and health visitors to recognize and help, and refer on when appropriate for treatment.

As part of our aim to train General Practitioners and Mental Health Professionals in Psychiatry, we organize training conference in India yearly. We have done the Training in Delhi and Bombay in 2012, Jaipur and Ahmedabad in 2013, Pune 2014, Pune 2016

We have trained about 550 professionals to date.

The Mental Health Professionals of the local area are invited to the conference, and given and Training and refreshers in Psychiatry, certificates for continuing medical education are given to the participants.

We collaborated with Capio Nightingale Hospital in London, Fortis hospitals in India, Mukul Madhav Foundation in Pune, using World Health Organization Recommended training modules. We presented certificates from World Psychiatric Association.
