Doctor from Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr N. Dinesh, Psychiatry and Behavior Medicine, points out the positive impact of Yoga on patients with mental illness. He said, " Anxiety and depression leads to breakdown in patients that needs to be treated initially with medicines. When they respond to medicines, we slowly shift to yoga. With regular yoga, we are able to get good results and we reduce the medicine dose". The National Institute of Mental Health & Neurosciences (Nimhans). has come up with a 'generic' yoga module for persons with mental illness. It has developed a yoga module for anxiety disorder, depression, mild cognitive impairment, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), Parkinson's and schizophrenia patients.
