We recognized the need for prioritizing mental health and proper caregiving to the individuals with Cancer. Hence, We launched world's first Center for Psycho-Oncology partnered with Texas School of Mental Health as Cancer does not only affect the physical health but also has a debilitating impact on the person affected by it and on the near ones. Psycho-Oncology is a remarkable field, a Mental Health speciality field of medicine that is associated with the individuals with cancer, family members & loved ones, caregivers, volunteers & medical professionals. Psycho -Oncology combines principles of psychology, psychiatry, oncology and supportive care and deals with psychological, behavioural, social and emotional aspects of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
