Psychiatry is a speciality of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of emotional, mental, and behavioural disorders. Currently, there are around 200 known psychiatric disorders. The human brain controls the functioning of each and every part of the body. In addition, it is also responsible for regulating behaviour, thoughts, and emotions. All our cognitive abilities, like planning, organising, memorising, problem-solving, critical thinking, judgement, abstract thinking, and impulse control, are made possible by the normal functioning of the highly developed part of the brain called the frontal cortex.
The diseases treated in the psychiatry department include diagnostic and therapeutic services for all neuro-psychiatry and psychiatry disorders, mood disorders, autism spectrum disorders, schizophrenic spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, mental health problems in the elderly, anxiety disorders, dementia, delirium, and cognitive disorders, psycho-sexual disorders, sleep disorders, mental health problems of adolescents, and somatoform disorders.
Other problems that are dealt with in the department include stress management, aftercare in head injury patients, behavioural therapy for phobia, anxiety, addictions, and some other non-specific disorders. We also provide treatment for childhood problems like bed wetting, nail-biting, and thumb sucking, eating disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorders, childhood over-anxious disorders, and autism and pervasive developmental disorders.
