District Mental Health Program

District Mental Health Program (DMHP) is an approach to decentralize mental health care in the community using the public health infrastructure and other resources. This model has been pilot tested in Bellary District of Karnataka State and found to be very useful to address the basic mental health needs of the population. This model has been implemented in all the states and currently there are 125 DMHP sites in India.

The Ministry of Health, Government of India envisages extension of District Mental Health Program to all the districts in the country as part of the 11th five-year plan. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare Government of India has revitalized the DMHP based the available evidence. As part of this training modules were developed in NIMHANS. Over 70 mental health professionals from all over the country as part of national consultative meeting held in NIMHANS offered valuable suggestions in developing this material. The revised modules were reviewed by a group of mental health and public health professionals in the Ministry of Health and Family welfare to develop the final version of modules.
