Psychiatry

Psychiatry is one of the neglected fields in our country where even today we are fighting to establish psychiatric illnesses as medical disorders in true sense. A mental illness is not a character flaw. It is caused by genetic, biological, social and environmental factors. According to a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) one in four people around the world suffer from mental health problems at some point in their lives. With appropriate treatment and support, people with mental illness can have normal life and live successfully in their community. It is high time we took these illnesses seriously.
