Behman Hospital invests in the future of mental health resources-both its own and the country's-through every student and practicing professional its staff trains and through every group of parents, teachers or community leaders its staff addresses. By way of these interactions, the hospital enhances the understanding of mental illness and helps to reduce its stigma, while at the same time, shaping the practice of psychiatry.

As a teaching hospital, Behman is proud of the foundation and knowledge it gives the professionals it trains. We are equally proud of what these individuals, in turn, give to the community.

Case Presentation

Case Presentation Photo Case Presentation

A weekly case presentation is held at the Behman library; developing communication and education for mental health professionals in order to provide more comprehensive care to service users. Learning this skill is mandatory, as acquiring presentation skills enhances professional competence. Cases are presented by a multi-disciplinary team comprised of a psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse and social worker, all familiar with the presented case's background. The art of case presentation is a ubiquitous challenge to mental health professionals.

Case Presentation sessions encompass Diagnosis and Management of a diverse range of fascinating cases.

Ratification is granted by the designated patient with full confidentiality during and after the presentation.

Journal Club

The Journal Club is held every week at the Behman library; presenting a scientific paper from recent distinguished journals in psychiatry. Registrars present the information in an easily understandable form to the audience. The resolution is for the audience to comprehend what the question is, how the question is answered, and what the take-home points are.

The post-presentation discussion is used to evaluate whether the ideas presented by the authors are valid and, if not, what alternatives may exist and how they could be cultivated.
