From a humble beginning with just a few faculty a decade ago, it has now metamorphosed in to a full fledged multidisciplinary team comprising of psychiatrist, psychologist, occupational therapist, psychiatric social worker providing comprehensive mental health care services.
In a short span of its existence it has become one of the leading center for mental health care services in the Union Territory of Pondicherry.
It has faculty from diverse background, but working together with the single goal and objective of reaching the unreached.

The following types of problems are managed.
  • Adult Psychiatric Disorders
  • Alcohol and drug addiction
  • Problems of Children and adolescents
  • Stress
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Old age problems
  • Marital problems
  • Rehabilitation of the mentally challenged
    and the mentally ill
A Wide range of Laboratory tests are also available. Addiction to substances such as alcohol, tobacco, ganja etc are managed with appropriate behavioral and other psychotherapeutic approaches to prevent relapse. This follows an initial phase of medication therapy for relieving the withdrawal effects of the particular substance.  Recovering patients are effectively supported by a self help group which meets on Saturday mornings.

Child guidance clinic is conducted on Saturdays which addresses the issues of children and adolescents with various kinds of psychiatric illnesses, behaviour problems, learning difficulties, retarded mental development and academic decline.  The clinic receives support and input from other clinical disciplines including paediatries and Neurology.

Psychiatric intervention is available round the clock for managing psychiatric emergencies including patients who are suicidal and acutely disturbed.  Biofeedback and other relaxation techniques are employed in addressing stress related disorders.Almost all mental and behavioural problems can be solved with modern advancements in the field of psychiatry.

In addition to the state of the art clinical services, the department is actively striving for excellence in the areas of academic and research by conducting workshops, conferences and taking up clinically relevant research projects.
