Department of Psychiatry


Department of psychiatry at AIIMS Mangalagiri was established in March 2019. The department is striving towards the mission to establish an efficient department for optimal patient care and psychiatry teaching. We follow a holistic approach in treating our patients which includes evidence based psychopharmacological and psychological management.

We provide outpatient and inpatient services. We also have a dedicated online consultation service. The department also is running special clinics like geriatric clinic, deaddiction clinic and child guidance clinic for special populations who require additional care.

The department is actively involved in spreading awareness about psychiatry disorders. We organize special programs on occasions like world mental health day and world suicide prevention day, every year. We organized a CME on ADHD in Nov 2021 and plan to organize many such events in the coming years

The department is actively involved in undergraduate teaching through didactic lectures as

well as clinicals, in our OPD and IPD. We also help our undergraduate students through our

exclusive student welfare clinic. We are working towards starting a postgraduate psychiatry program in the department soon.

Our faculty are actively involved in research with multiple research projects ongoing in the department.
