Origin and Organization

Publication activity in this institute dates back to 1958 when the erstwhile All India Institute of Mental Health, Bangalore started a journal called Pratibha. In 1960, various considerations prompted the authorities to change the name of the journal to 'Transactions'. 'Transactions' was published once a year till 1971.

The National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences came into existence in 1974. Realising the importance of communciation in the area of mental health and neuro sciences, and in consonance with the objective of 'undertaking publication of journals, research monographs, leaflets and text books; collecting, organizing and publishing knowledge about mental health and neurosciences', a full-fledged Department of Publication was established in 1981 to co-ordinate the publications work of NIMHANS. Publication has become one of the important activities of the Institute today.

The Department is headed by a Deputy Editor. The department includes two technical and two general staff members.
