New Delhi: REC Limited has committed financial assistance of about Rs 1.27 crore under its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative to the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services department (PRS) of NIMHANS in Bengaluru.
The objective of the project is to promote the growth and development of mental health rehabilitation using an integrated multidisciplinary approach that will encourage and empower patients with mental illness and caregivers to lead an independent, productive and dignified life. The facilities will benefit more than 1,000 people with mental illness each year.
Among other things, a unique 64 channel EEG Neurofeedback system, EEG based Event-Related Potentials (ERP) recording system equipment will be set up. Neurofeedback based training will significantly add to helping patients with severe mental illnesses improve their cognitive deficits and help in objectively assessing the neural changes happening due to the existing cognitive remediation program. The project also seeks to set up a web portal and directory for services to persons with mental illness.
The memorandum of agreement (MoA) in this regard has been executed between REC Foundation and NIMHANS Bengaluru. REC’s Sr. CPM & CGM R Anbalagan and NIMHANS’s Director Dr Pratima Murthy signed the MoA in the presence of REC Manager SS Gowtham, NIMHANS’s Registrar Dr Shankaranarayana Rao and other officials of PRS NIMHANS Bengaluru.
