The logo of our department is conceived and developed by considering the main three domains of  our  functionality in the areas of Education ( Teaching- Learning), Patient care and Research. 

1. Teaching- learning- To achieve the goals and to aim the outcome with its maximum positive output, the vision, mission and action must be target oriented. We follow this fundamental principle of success, and our all plans and activities are target oriented, whether it is in the area of education, clinical activities or research.

2. Patient care- Good human relation is inevitable in the existence and success of goal directed activity of any institution. We too promote strengthening of relations, by understanding the psychology of human behavior and correlating the principles of inter personal relationship and basic communication skills. It is essential when it comes to the ground of an area which deals with the care of mentally unsound people.

3. Research-  Academical activity incorporated with the clinical area and other research field is the prime interest of our department. So all our curricular and extra curricular activities enable the learner to excel in his/her academic performance and utilize the knowledge and skills in the area of clinical performance and teaching as well. Every year we plan and execute novel methods of clinical teaching for the students by Problem Based Learning. 

The department is a part of Father Muller Mental Health Center, one of the earliest in its kind, in the private sector in India.  A varieties of activities like, group therapy, psycho education, group discussion, case analysis, workshops and seminars are being carried out by the department regularly, where the students will be getting hands-on training to be masters in the specialty.
