Department of Psychiatric Social Work

Psychosocial Support and Mental Health Services in Disaster Management

Nodal Center for Psychosocial Care in Disasters

The
M inistry of Health, Government of India has recognized the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences as the Nodal Center for Psychosocial Care in Disasters. NIMHANS has been involved in psychosocial support and mental health services in natural and human made disasters for the last twenty-five years. Some of the major disasters where in NIMHANS was involved are Venus Circus fire tragedy, Bangalore (1981), Bhopal Gas tragedy (1984), Lattur Earthquake (1992), Orissa Super Cyclone (1999), Gujarat Earthquake (2001) and Riots (2002), South Indian Tsunami (2004) and the Kashmir Earthquake (2005). Based on the experiences of providing psychosocial support and mental health services for the survivors of the disasters, NIMHANS has evolved and standardized a 'Normalization Model' which emphasizes involvement of local community resources like the Governmental, Non Governmental sectors and the community survivors who could carry out simple and effective community based interventions to alleviate the emotional and social problems of the survivors and various risk groups. These community manpower resources need to be empowered through various capacity building exercise to bring in mastery over the events and problems. The various standardized materials that need to be used in accordance to the rescue, relief, rehabilitation, and rebuilding phases are given in this portal. NIMHANS welcomes information of adoption and use of these materials. The Department of Psychiatric Social Work regularly organizes Trainers of Trainee program on Disaster Psychosocial Support and Mental Health Services. For further information on these contact:
