Central India Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (CIIMHANS) has been established and functioning since the year 2007 by the benevolent and generous minded members of the Elite director board of Dr Ram Lakhan Gupta Foundation, Durg (CG).
CIIMHANS, since its commencement of journey through, had a mission re-inforced. The mission of reaching out to the victims of mental health issues, addiction and the lamenting families. The customary scheme of faith healing, its promoters like Baigas and Guniyas etc and their subjecting the downtrodden population of comparatively backward state of Chhattisgarh in terms of literacy and economy were taking a toll on the state of affairs. Needless to mention, such misconceptions and myths were never paying any dividends to the cause of reinstating the mental health. Instead, the proneness of the illiterates to Jadu, Tona, Jhad-phook and many named or unnamed techniques was on a rise making the crooks reaping the benefits. From a global perception, World Health Organization in their recent statistics has revealed the frightening fact of more than 450 million across the globe suffer from mental illnesses. The malaise of mental illness and addiction to substances need no emphasis. It leads to loosing of skills, dependency on the family results into becoming a non-productive member of the family. In a family it comes as a curse and for those who have less understanding, lack of caring members and other resources, this problem persists to be a grave phenomenon. CIIMHANS, with our aim have come up with the perfect innovative idea of a rehabilitation centre for catering to the societal need by inducting highly expert professionals so that the residents could experience the delightful stay with quality care, comfort, security, kindness, love and empathy as provided by their family, the baseline being rehabilitation.
Even following benefit of the finest offered medication, why consequences are not phenomenal? Do the needy ones get care and quality time in family? These are some concerns which are addressed by providing required expertise, special care and rehabilitation assistance to the mentally ill and addicts and their family member.
The easily reachable outskirt area, out of city limits on G.E Road, at Dewada between Durg and Rajnandgaon District, free from pollution and congestion, sprawling about 8-10 acres out of which 30 % of the land is used as the plinth area for construction. Near vicinity is surrounded by verdant green, wheat & horticultural farms make it one of the unique features of the centre which provides a very healthy, clean, green, calm and quiet, stress free environment to the residents.
Quality Policy of Central India Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (CIIMHANS) aims at enhancing the excellence of healthcare by incessant progress & to provide utmost contentment for our stakeholders.
