Conditions we treat



Best Psychiatric Treatment in Hyderabad - STAR Hospitals

It’s easier to treat an external injury, as the root cause is often detectable with no trouble. However, the same is not the case with mental disorders, particularly the ones that are not hereditary or congenital by nature. Small emotional imbalances, when ignored, turn out to become a habit and we hardly become aware of our dependency on this unhealthy habit, unless it goes out of control. Fear, anger, isolation from social life, lack of interest in any activity are a few of the signs of going through mental or emotional challenges. STAR Hospital’s department of psychiatry, has a few of the world’s best doctors who are highly skilled in providing the best treatment to heal your mental illness. Treating mental illness is equally important as taking care of physical health, and there is nothing to be ashamed of when seeking any clinical support to stabilize your life. Maintaining mental hygiene is as crucial as physical hygiene.

Causes and Treatment of Psychiatric Disorder

We use a wide range of techniques to understand if you are undergoing any mental blocks. Our psychiatrists hold strong knowledge in psychology, neurology, and medicine to help you better. We usually prescribe oral medications and multiple counselling sessions depending on the disorder. Below are a few of the treatment measures used here.

  • Psychotherapy/counselling: We conduct several one-on-one sessions with you where we discuss your problems and figure out ways together that suits you best to resolve your problem. Most of the time such therapies with you and the entire family turn out to be helpful. We use such techniques for more stress related cases than severe mental health conditions.
  • Medication: Oral medicines are often prescribed, which help relax the brain chemicals involved in stress/emotional state of mind. Though they aren’t a permanent cure to any psychiatric conditions, they are proven to improve the symptoms. They are usually supported with other therapy methods such as counselling for quick healing.
  • Other therapies: We also have physical activity sessions like yoga and meditation, therapies involving art and music and even writing, to relieve you from stress and to help you build healthier habits.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy: We use this technique to relieve psychological stress. It helps treat any trauma related mental disorder, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
