Dr Malhotra and Dr Kumar organised a free psychiatric consultation clinic in a remote rural area in Bihar, India. They saw over 60 patients with various psychiatric problems and mental health concerns, and provided a management plan for them. Their efforts were appreciated by the local district health officials, who requested Dr Malhotra and Dr Kumar to further organise training for local doctors, nurses and other health care workers in India. Since then, concerted efforts are being made to design a unique mental health care model that benefits the local population of India.
