Mind is the quintessential canvas. It is an uncanny world capable of unleashing incredible beauty and at the same time potent enough to create intimidating ordeals. But fear & pain are not the positives of life which can encourage mental health. At our psychiatry department, we try and induce a sense of wellbeing to our patients after understanding their situations. A multitude of mental inadequacies ranging from mild, acute, and chronic; covering all age groups – children, adolescents and adults, are treated. An added advantage is having internists and other specialists under the same roof, especially neurology and neurosurgery facilitating to tackle various neuropsychiatric problems.
