An era where the technology is controlling the human minds and disturbing the mental equilibrium- people loosing touch with themselves but staying in touch with their touch screen mobile phones have disconnected them from their own potentials, creativity and coping skills. Today 'Stress' is the catch word playing havoc in everyone's life. Often, a good heart-to-heart talk with someone you can trust may be all that you really need to put back that spring in your step. Stress, anxiety, tension, exam fear, suicide, middle age crisis, childhood disorders, parental pressure, peer pressure are all the walk of life. An expert guidance, scientific approach, and a good heart to heart conversation can bring back the zest in your life.

Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that deals with the scientific study of a wide range of mental functions including perception, cognition, emotion, personality, behavior, and interpersonal relationships. Psychology applies such knowledge to our everyday life and treats mental health issues by understanding the role of these mental functions in individual and society, while at the same time exploring the physiological and neurological factors as well.

A good clinical psychologist can be that pair of ears you were so frantically searching for. She/He will listen to you. She/He will help you analyze yourself and your surroundings and help you understand yourself, your circumstances, your behavior, your interpersonal relations, your stress factors etc. Also she/he will help you de-stress and find ways to discover a better and complete 'you'. She/ He will also guide you to work on community re-bonding that plays an important part in human development, health, industry, media, and law.

Dept of Psychiatry

Psychiatry is the medical specialty that deals with the prevention and treatment of emotional and cognitive dysfunction in human beings which are essentially chemical, structural, hormonal and immunological dysfunctions of the most important organ of our body – the Brain. Considered the middle ground between Neurology and Psychology, Psychiatry also utilizes researches in the field of neuroscience, psychology, medicine, biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology in order to arrive at a diagnosis. Psychiatrists are Physicians. But unlike other physicians and neurologists, psychiatrists specialize in the doctor-patient relationship and are trained in the use of psychotherapy and other therapeutic communication techniques There are two approaches to understanding mental illnesses in Psychiatry namely, the Bio-medical approach and the Narrative. The biomedical approach examines the various signs and symptoms in the patient and compares them with diagnostic criteria where as, through the narrative the symptoms are understood as a part of the patient’s life history and as responses to external conditions. Both approaches are important in the field of psychiatry. We at Sunrise Hospital adopt both these approaches while treating our patients.

Our psychiatric evaluation procedure includes

  • Mental Status Examination
  • Physical Examination
  • Pathological, Psychopathological and Psychosocial Histories
  • Neuro-images or other Neuro-psychological Measurements
  • Personality Tests or Cognitive Tests

Many diseases are found to be Psychosomatic in nature. Identifying the root cause and administering the exact treatment could prevent these symptoms from recurring. Moreover it is found that listening to the patients and counseling them as required improves their mental health.
