RESEARCH

We, at CBS, aim to promote a union between mental health, public health and research to develop evidence-based, cost-effective public mental health interventions in resource constrained settings (low and middle income countries).

Dr Kushal Jain has diverse research experience from extensive associations with numerous research institutions, such as All India Institute of Medical Sciences (Delhi), Lund University (Sweden), World Health Organization (Geneva), MAMTA Health Institute for Mother and Child (Delhi) and Vidyasagar Institute of Mental Health and Allied Neuroscience (Delhi).

Dr Devika Mehra has previous research experience of working in South Africa and Uganda with a focus on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, HIV, Mental Health, Sexual violence, youth friendly health services and gender.

At CBS, we provide technical support for diverse research initiatives such as:
• Systematic reviews
• Epidemiological studies - quantitative community surveys
• Qualitative studies
• Community based intervention trial for public health interventions
• Clinical trials
• Developing research guidelines and implementation protocols
