The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the Apollo Hospitals of Behavioral Sciences offers a full complement of Diagnostic, Psychotherapeutic, and Medical management of Psychiatric Disorders. Our vision is to provide Mental Health care of International standards to all by a team of highly qualified and experienced psychiatrists and psychologists.
Psychiatric medicine today is a vast field that incorporates many facets of the body and mind. It’s easy to know when you have a fever but difficult to identify a mental health problem. Mental health is how we think, feel and act as we cope with life. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Our brain is like any other part of our body, and mental illness is just like a physical disease.
Like a physical illness, mental illness also needs care and treatment. And, like many physical illnesses, with the right treatment most people with mental disorders are able to live healthy and productive lives.
There are a wide variety of medical and psychotherapeutic modalities that can benefit issues ranging from mood disorders, depression, anxiety, phobias, Obsessive compulsive disorder, eating challenges, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. A multidisciplinary team evaluates children and adults via personal interviews, assessments psychological testing and laboratory tests at the hospital.
Following Psychometric tests are conducted at this hospital:
- Rorschach Inkblot Test
- Thermatic Apperception Test
- Children Appreciation Test
We also perform IQ assessment for the age group of 3.5 to 4.5 years, which helps to diagnose mental retardation and evaluation of ability.
