Clinical and Ancient Psychology Program in India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

We want to offer anyone with a keen interest in global mental health the opportunity to expand their knowledge further, but we also understand that not everyone has the time or the inclination to do an extended placement abroad. As a result, we've developed our week-long educational program in India with NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience) and the School of Ancient Wisdom. This program has been designed for anyone who would like to explore more closely how ancient Eastern techniques can complement modern methods to treat mental health concerns.

This unique program is led by our Project Manager Yasintha and local clinical psychologists and psychiatrists, some of whom double as yogis, and aims to provide insight into how Indian mental health treatment combines recent medical developments with holistic practice to promote a unique approach to mental well-being.


This is an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal with the mental health sector of another country. You'll get to experience the technological giant that is NIMHANS by exploring the facility as well as having an audience with many of its Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry specialists. In the second part of the week you'll delve into more traditional techniques of yoga and meditation. This trip is jam-packed, so get ready to be busy!


There is no need for prior experience within the mental health sector - a keen interest in Psychology is enough for our Educational Program.

Upon completion, team members will be awarded a certificate attesting participation and listing the workshops they took part on while in India.
