With regard to the increasing changes and sophistication of society and development of social communications, preparation of individuals, for facing difficult situations is an essential issue. With number of patients affected with mental disorders rising at an alarming rate, focus is on giving equal attention to mental health along with physical well-being for all-round excellence. The secret lies in communicating specifically with the brain verbally as well as physically through the latest psychological technique known as neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). 

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) developed in the USA in the 1970’s has achieved widespread popularity as a method for communication and personal development. The title, coined by the founders, Bandler and Grinder (1975a), refers to purported systematic, cybernetic links between a person’s internal experience (neuro), their language (linguistic) and their patterns of behaviour (programming). In essence NLP is a form of modelling that offers potential for systematic and detailed understanding of people’s subjective experience.It offers easy and practical approach towards curing mental disorders. It can increase the level of knowledge and have a positive effect on the various dimensions of human life. NLP not only promote individuals’ general health but also to lower depression, anxiety, social function reduction, and physical problems, which will prevent mental and physical disorders.
In this paper the nature, assumptions, techniques and applications of Neuro-linguistic Programming is outlined and its potential in the field of mental health as a psychotherapeutic technique is explored and reviewed.
