Yet another facet is the Fortis Sport Psychology programme that combines our clinical and sport psychological expertise to optimize sport performance. It is our endeavour to create holistic intervention plans that address the needs of individual players while taking into account aspects of team dynamics.
We also extend our services through the Fortis Community Outreach programme which is geared towards creating awareness of mental health concerns, promoting remedial interventions and engaging in knowledge and capacity building interventions for volunteers working in the community sector.
We take pride in our Academic Programme, born out of a vision to furthering the academic development of both students and professionals in the field of Psychology and Psychiatry. As part of this initiative, the department runs intensive internship programmes that expose the minds of motivated learners to the clinical and non-clinical aspects of mental health and also provide for workshops, training seminars and conferences on clinical topics.
