About Us


Pakistan Institute of Living and Learning (PILL) was established in Islamabad in 1998. It was a unique concept by Major General (R) Ishrat Husain (late) to promote mental health of a common man. He was an eminent psychiatrist, a great visionary and well ahead of his times who believed in the holistic approach by applying integrated physical, mental and spiritual interventions to achieve good mental health and well-being. He believed that both physical and mental health, together serves the important role in positive child development and better family environment which results in a confident and successful future generation. General (R) Ishrat, also had a major role in the development of psychiatry across Pakistan. Pakistan Armed Forces, acknowledging his efforts awarded him the Sitara-e Imtiaz (Military) in 1978 and Hilal-e-Imtiaz (the highest award for meritorious services) in 1984. After he passed away, in recognition of his services to the field psychiatry and psychology, the institute was renamed as Ishrat Husain Pakistan Institute of Living and Learning.
