There is a gross deficit in the mental health training facilities in our country. The existing institutes lack sufficient opportunity in training. As there are no efficient and adequate persons in the training of mental health, we started training programmes with the motive of imparting sound knowledge about various aspects of mental health.

Athma hospitals offers internship programmes to Psychology students, Social work trainees, both undergraduate and post-graduate courses for psychiatric nursing students, and allied health students throughout the country.

This is one of the largest private service facilitators in India that provides mental health training to students from inside and outside the state.

Over 2000 students are utilizing our facilities every year. They are exposed to an ample variety of diagnostic conditions and the total quantum care in mental health, namely, acute care Emergency Care Rehabilitation. Students are given lectures based on their requirements.
