The academic wing has recently developed a 3-year undergraduate degree programme,
Bachelors of Science (BSc) in Mental Health
which is being offered at the Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS). The programme is designed bearing in mind the existing gap in our mental health care systems, which are disjointed and overpowered by the demanding mental health needs of the population. It is the first of its kind programme and focuses on building core skills and competencies with ethics in mental health care. Students will be trained in identifying mental illnesses at early stages and can take part in modalities of collaborative case management, managing crisis, suicide prevention, and engaging in mental health advocacy. We share a goal of strengthening the community approach to mental health promotion, thus reducing the stigma attached. The aim is to create a new cadre of professionals which are currently lacking in the Indian system of mental health sector.

Potential students and parents who are interested in applying for B.Sc in Mental Health can register for a one-on-one counseling session with faculty members in case they have any queries about the programme, before admissions close this cycle (2022). They can choose to have an on-campus session, phone call, or video call based on their availability.
