Why A Healthy Mind Matters?
“Mental health is fundamental to overall health and productivity. It is the basis for successful contributions to family, community and society.
Throughout the lifespan, mental health is the wellspring of thinking and communication skills, learning, resilience, and self esteem” American Surgeon General
A psychiatrist is a medical qualified doctor whose focus of work is that of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention.
Over the last 20 years or so, there has been dramatic change in the image of mental health care and the process. Rather than focussing on being admitted to hospital, there are now smaller modern units where the emphasis is on treatment rather than long term management.
Growing knowledge has led to an increase in effective treatments, both physical and phsycological that can make huge differences to individuals in the acute phase of a psychiatric illness. This means that many more people can be treated whilst living at home without needing to be admitted to hospital. Nowadays, relatively fewer patients require long term management in hospital.
