Mental hospital Indore was born in 1917 as an asylum in the central province of independent India called Madhya Bharat, influenced by British concept. There is a major shift from the old concept of inhuman custodial care till last two decades, to the present modern and well equipped hospitals for treatment and care of mentally ill. This hospital has become a centre for the post graduate teaching in psychiatry, research and community oriented mental health services. It is also extending training in mental health to the medical officers/doctors and paramedics working in public health department and private sector from all over the state.
