The World Health Organization conceptualizes mental health as a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community (WHO, 2007). The Department of Psychiatry provides personalized comprehensive mental and behavioral healthcare to patients, trains fellows, residents and medical students to serve a broad spectrum of patient populations, and conducts innovative research in the fields of neurology, psychiatry and psychology.
Several Development Funds have been established by generous donors. These funds provide support to the Department to further its mission and vision. Please consider contributing to one of the funds below.
