In-Patient Services at VIMHANS

Since 1994, VIMHANS has been dedicatedly running a licensed in-patient facility, the ONLY of its kind in North India. The institution’s services lay heavy emphasis on taking a holistic approach for every person with mental illness admitted with us – and hopefully lay the foundation for his/her recovery journey.

We address this ‘holistic’ approach by delivering services on the Bio-Psycho-Socio model.
