As the In-charge Head it is my privilege to welcome you all to the newly established Department of , GMC, Baramulla.
“There is no health without mental health.” As this adage goes, mental health forms an important but often neglected part of our lives today. According to the World Health Organization-WHO, common mental disorders like unipolar depression will be the second leading cause of disability (DALY’s) by the year 2020. Easy accessibility of mental health services is thus need of the hour. The establishment of this department will go a long way in fulfilling that need, especially for the people of North Kashmir.
Currently the department is running thrice a week outpatient (OPD) services where patients are getting psychiatric consultations besides counselling and psychotherapy (in collaboration with MSF). With the meagre manpower and space available at present, the department is providing the best possible patient care. With the increase in manpower and infrastructure in near future, we should be able to expand our services further.
