Vazhikatti Mental Health Center
Psychological and behavioural disturbances… mental illness… psychiatric disorders… For many it is mild, minor and short lived. They are back on their feet soon, on their own. Some may need professional help. It may be a single consultation / a couple of visits / short term out-patient care/ a few days in-patient care / long term outpatient care / Residential long term care, depending on the nature and severity of the disturbance. Distress / disturbance / illness / disorders / diseases come in many forms and names. Depression, Anxiety, Behaviour & Thought Problems, Addictions, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Insomnia (Sleeplessness), Psychosis, Psychosexual Problems, Phobias, Suicidal thoughts and behaviours, Concentration Problems, Loneliness, Parenting Issues & Doubts, Low Confidence, Emotional Outbursts, Grief, Adolescent Problems, mental upsets, mood-outs… If you have been wondering whether to seek professional help for your psychological distress, it is wiser to get it done at the earliest. Because, for many, in our socio-cultural setting of stigma and limited information, such thoughts of seeking help come to them only when they have already passed milder stage of illness.
