All National Mental Health programs are implemented by Deva Institute. The Institute provides regular preventive, promote and curative services to the citizens of Varanasi district and nearby surrounding areas. There is a mandatory provision for scheduled visits for the clinicians in Deva Institute under the Community Outreach Mental-health Awareness Program (COMAP) to cater to needs of population from villages nearby Varanasi.
