Psychiatry

The mind is the most powerful thing that humans have. But little do most understand that it is also one of the most vulnerable. So, just like you know how important physical health is, there is a need to understand how important mental health is. Mental health is an expression that is used everyday, every hour, and every moment. So it might come to you as a surprise to know that the term “Mental Health” is often misunderstood by many.

The World Health Organization states that mental health is about a state in which individuals can figure out their potential, cope with the ups and downs of life, and work productively to contribute to their community and the society. So it’s about what’s going well, and not about what isn’t going right.

Issues with mental health are nothing to be ashamed of. Even though many of you might be hesitant to opt for psychiatric treatment, yet, it’s essential that you understand that you should not take your mental health for granted. At our department of psychiatry, we understand the concerns that you have, and we ensure that your privacy is respected, and your deepest fears and problems are addressed with empathy and clinical excellence.
