To promote mental health in society, NIMHANS recently started a Centre for Well-Being on its premises. It offers services of stress management for professionals, college students, homemakers, families and children, pre- and post-marital problems among couples, training and workshops on preventive mental health for school, and college teachers on life skills, counselling and healthy parenting.

Concerned over the increasing number of suicides and frequent media reportage, psychiatrists here have taken up an awareness campaign.

“We're organising a workshop on mental health and suicide prevention for the public and the media on December 19,” Prabha Chandra added.
