Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar on Friday said the state's 'E-Manas' platform can be implemented nationwide for streamlining mental healthcare. Karnataka had developed a comprehensive and innovative software platform for mental health called 'E-Manas' and launched it in June 2020 which consisted of over 12 projects to address mental health, the minister was quoted as saying in a statement issued by his office.
The minister said this during the 14th Conference of Central Council of Health and Family Welfare (CCHFW), the apex advisory body for Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW).
The conference has been named as "Swasthya Chintan Shivir" and it is being held at Kevadia, Gujarat from May 5 to 7.
'E-Manas' is an internet-based, statewide registry of mental health professionals, establishments and patients, Sudhakar said, adding, it will be a one-stop destination for all mental health activity. He assured that the data will be stored secretly and it will be secure.
Sudhakar told Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya that Karnataka will be integrating 'E-Manas' with other platforms currently in use including Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka, Karnataka Private Medical Establishment Directories and NIC's (National Informatics Centre) E-Hospital framework.
"Karnataka's 'E-Manas' can be implemented nationwide for streamlining mental healthcare," Sudhakar was quoted as saying in the statement.
He also explained about Manochaitanya clinics, which were started when the COVID-19 pandemic began, as the government came to know about the fears, apprehension and stigma among coronavirus patients that even led to some patients taking their own lives.
With the Manochaitanya clinic, mental health professionals would go house-to-house and counsel COVID-19 patients. In addition to this, 27 lakh coronavirus patients were tele-counseled with help from the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS), the minister explained.
