Psychiatric

About Us

The department of Psychiatry was established in 1994. Initially the department offered basic psychiatric services for the needy patients. The patients were mostly treated on outpatient basis. Consultation- Liaison therapy was also provided to in patients of other specialty departments. In July 2001, major changes were implemented in the department, apart from providing basic psychiatric health care, patients were given ECT’s and psychometric assessments were started. The department extended its facilities to Kolar OPD so as to bring the psychiatric services to the doorstep of the people of Kolar town. The department viewed a tremendous flow of inpatients. During this period, a high end modernized digital EEG machine was procured for the benefit of epileptic patients in terms of diagnosis. More psychometric instruments were also purchased for the benefit of the patients. All acutely ill patients and other chronic schizophrenics were admitted and provided holistic care. The department has inpatient capacity of 30 beds.
