Department of Psychiatry

The Department of Psychiatry offers specialised services such as child and adolescent psychiatry clinic and de-addiction clinic. The stigma associated with psychiatry has been dipping as is evident in the increasing number of inpatients and outpatients reaching out to get treated.
