President Emphasizes to Integrate Healthcare With Mental Health Services in India

On inaugurating the heritage museum at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS), President of India, Pranab Mukherjee has emphasized the importance of integrating healthcare services with mental health services. He said that healthcare services cannot be complete without mental healthcare services.

"Today, there is an increasing realization all over the world that there can be no health without mental health. Our country's first comprehensive mental health policy was notified only as recently as last October on the occasion of World Mental Health Day," said Mukherjee.

He declared NIMHANS as an Institute of national importance. He stressed that the hospital should adopt modern technology to improve efficiencies in all its centers.

"It is only appropriate that NIMHANS, located in the IT city of Bengaluru, should adopt modern, computer-based hospital information systems to improve efficiencies in all its centers. The use of information technology to invigorate health care delivery also helps in reducing costs, optimizing resource management and minimizing paper work." He also applauded the hospital faculty initiatives to adopt e-hospital and e-project programs on its premises.

"The e-hospital and e-project programs taken up by NIMHANS are, therefore, excellent initiatives, worthy of emulation by other institutions," he said.
