Emergency Press Conference was held by MIND Organization
October 1, 2019
Emergency press conference was held by MIND Organization at Lahore Press Club against the recent decision by Specialized Healthcare and Medical Education Department to attach the Punjab Institute of Mental Heath (PIMH) with Services Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS). This decision is completely biased and the Supervisory Committee of PIMH totally disagrees with this and considers attachment of PIMH to SIMS detrimental to not only PIMH but psychiatry in general as well.
It the press conference, it was demanded that PIMH should be run as independent hospital and there should be a strong autonomous body who can work to make PIMH a real state of art psychiatric intuition.
