The Speciality OCD Clinic - NIMHANS

The OCD clinic was started on the 24 of June, 1997 at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore, INDIA with the objectives of providing clinical services, training mental health professionals and facilitating research in the area of OCD. The OCD clinic caters to around 200-300 new patients per year and follows up close to 2000 patients in a year. Patients are often referred from across the country for expert opinion and treatment. The specialty OCD clinic is widely known in the country for its research activities. Research work carried out in the clinic is published widely in national and international peer reviewed journals. Research activities of the clinic include many aspects of OCD such as phenomenology, course and outcome studies, family/genetic studies, treatment aspects, neuroimaging, and neuropsychological studies. In commemoration of completion of two decades of specialty OCD services at the NIMHANS, Bangalore, INDIA, an international conference is planned in the month of October 2017.
