Since completing his post-graduation at CIP, Prof. Das has served the Institute in various capacities, most notably as Professor of Psychiatry since 2012.

The outpatient department has been operating out of a double storied building immediately outside the boundary of the Institute since 1982. The OPD functions daily from 8.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. except on holidays. The Institute caters to the needs of patients from Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh and the North-Eastern States. The patients from neighbouring countries like Nepal and Bangladesh also come for consultation. It is an authorized centre of mental health for Central Government, Railways, CCL, BCCL, SAIL etc. The OPD block has facilities of mineral water and a canteen for the patients. A Sulabh Sauchalaya complex has been commissioned for the patients near the OPD block.

When the patient first visits the outpatient services, (s)he has to get registered at the registration counter situated on the ground floor near the main gate of the OPD building. There is no charge for registration. Once registered, a registration card bearing the Case Record File (C.R.F) Number or the Unique Health Identification Number (UHID) is issued to the patient. Further, necessary personal and socio-demographic details are noted during the registration process.

Once done with the registration, a detailed work up/assessment is done by a junior doctor using a structured format during which the details about the patient’s illness is collected, documented and then discussed with the senior doctor for appropriate management and treatment. The entire process of the first visit takes approximately 2 -3 hours. The patient who has been advised psychological management has to visit another block (Psychosocial Unit) which is few minutes away from the OPD main building where the required treatment would be initiated.

The follow up visits should be on the unit days as mentioned on the registration card. However, the patients can choose to visit on any other day in matters of emergency. For the patients having a follow up visit at the Institute, the process is similar to the first visit where they have to proceed to the registration counter with the previous registration details. A token number is received and the list of names is displayed on the notice board. The patients and their guardians need to wait outside the designated rooms for further consultation. Those who are advised subsequent outpatient treatment need to follow the same process as mentioned above during each visit and those needing inpatient treatment need to follow the process as described below.

Once advised inpatient treatment within the hospital, the patient has to report in Room No. 1 (Admission Corner) situated on the ground floor near the main gate of the OPD building. The patient has to follow the advice given in Room No.1 and deposit the money at the cash counter for inpatient treatment.

The hospital has 24 hour emergency services for patients who are mentally ill. There are 16 beds (8 males, 8 females), and the services are provided free, apart from the cost of medicines and food which has to be borne by the guardians accompanying the patient. The guardians are required to stay with the patient till their stay in emergency ward. The patient may be either discharged, referred to a medical facility or admitted to the inpatient wards depending on his/her condition. In O.P.D., there is also a facility for 24-hour telephonic help line services. The on-duty nurses and trained doctors attend the call and gives valuable advice to the people who are in need of help.
