DIMHANS Newsletter


On 16th July, DIMHANS Newsletter was formally released by Dr. Mahesh Desai, Director of DIMHANS. DIMHANS Newsletter was a recent decision to formally record all the events and community programs conducted by DIMHANS. It also features articles, poems, and art by staff, faculty, and students of DIMHANS. The event was attended by the administrative staff and faculty and students from all departments.  Also present were editors of the newsletter, Dr. Sahithya BR., Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology; Dr. Ananthramu BG, Assistant Professor of Psychiatric Social Work; and newsletter advisor Dr. Raghavendra Nayak, Associate Professor of Psychiatry.
