This unit was started in September 2010 with the goal to reduce re-admission rates by 10 per cent from the previous year.

Using maps from Colombo and surrounding area, a database of all patients admitted to NIMH has been established and is updated daily. Once a patient is discharged, the closest clinic to the person's home is notified and performs the necessary follow-up appointments.
