Origin of A New Ray...
Unit of ANR Hospital
Neuropsychiatric hospital and ANR centre established in 1977 has been catering to mental health needs of people over the past 4 decades. Started with an aim to provide services for common mental illnesses like anxiety disorders and depression, it expanded its arena by providing treatment services for serious mental illness like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder & drug de-addiction services. Our services further grew up by including ultra rapid detoxification for opioid use in 2001. Apart from the inpatient and outpatient setup in the hospital, looking at the need for rehabilitation services we initiated Aas - the rehab centre in the outskirts of Jalandhar.
Observing the changing trends through the years, we felt that mental health issues are increasing in children and adolescents at an alarming rate. Therefore, we felt the need for an exclusive and comprehensive setup for child mental health care and services. Hence, we envision to provide such a clinic through our initiative - A New Ray.
