The research initiatives at Montfort College aim to promote the furtherance of knowledge in the field of mental health and its optimal dissemination. We strive to conceptualize and execute research for the benefit of all the stake holders. As mental health training has been largely shaped by Western thought, we envisage discovering the unique contributions of the Indian context to mental health training and service delivery. The ultimate goal is to derive principles, methods and guidelines for the practice of the mental health profession to benefit all strata of the society.
