Institute of Mental Health and Hospital Agra

The institution was initially known as Agra Lunatic Asylum. It is one of the oldest mental health institutions in the country. An interesting fact about the establishment of this institute concerns the then Lt Governor of Agra, J.R.Colvin. It is said that the gentleman became a lunatic in 1857. This led to the need for a mental asylum in this part of The British-governed area. That is how the Agra lunatic asylum came into existence in 1859. The asylum was initially run by the inspector general of prisons. The situation was hardly conducive to mental health. This resulted in the termination of the administrative control of the asylum by prison administration. It then came under a medical superintendent in 1905. Thus, began the era of improvement and evolution of the institute as it is known today.

It continued to be governed under Indian Lunacy Act 1912 till 1993 although a different set of rules for such institutes were promulgated in 1987. It was in 1993 that the situation changed. The regulations governing it were modified to suit the provisions of Mental Health Act 1987. Hon’ble Supreme Court declared it an autonomous institute in 1994 and it was renamed Agra Mansik Arogyashala. The court also laid certain guidelines to be followed here. The institute was to develop into a place utilizing improved techniques of taking care of the mentally ill. It was also to carry activities that will improve teaching and research. It is now known as Institute of Mental Health and Hospital since 2001.

The institute is spread over an area of 172 acres of land. It has facilities for treatment, training and research today. It is known as one of the most prominent institutions in the area of mental healthcare and research in the country. Beside other facilities, it has today a half way home with 10 beds to help those who are sufficiently improved to facilitate their transition to the mainstream of the society. A vocational training programme to rehabilitate the former patients especially the female patients is one of the highlights of its various departments. The research department is going full steam to work on various areas of mental health is evident from the number of Ph.D students working here and producing wonderful case studies. More than 50 papers have been published in the Journal of Psychiatry.

The hospital has the facility to teach and provide care to almost all types of mental ailments. It acts as a referral hospital also. Serious cases are generally referred to the Institute from all over the state. Its trained and professional team of experts has made it one of the most prestigious institutes of the state in medical training and psychiatric health care. These professionals are working tirelessly for improvement and care of the mental health of the people.
