What Our Clients Have To Say

I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.

I’m very happy with the doctors, medical staff, and facilities at Cadabam’s hospital. Apart from being highly skilled in the field, the doctors and other medical staff are also very patient and supportive. Right from diagnosing the issue to prescribing medicines and creating the perfect treatment plan, they are with you every step of the way. I am glad I reached out to the team at Cadabam’s for counseling sessions.

I have observed great improvements in my son who has autism. The treatment plan created by the doctors has helped reduce the symptoms and he now is slowly learning new skills that assist him in his day-to-day activities. I cannot thank the team at Cadabam’s enough for giving my son the opportunity to have a happy and healthy childhood.

Excellent doctors, excellent team of medical staff, excellent facilities. From the people to the facilities and infrastructure, Cadabam’s has everything you need to address and improve your mental health illnesses.

I’m extremely grateful to the doctors and the entire team at Cadabams for creating an action plan to help me with my anxiety. I was finding it very difficult to maintain a social life and even focus on my career because of my severe anxiety. But now that I have been meeting with the team for over a year, I can proudly say that I have gotten much better at understanding and dealing with my anxiety. Thank you Cadabam’s!

My wife and I were not able to maintain a healthy relationship due to a lot of personal issues. Just when we thought our marriage would be over, we decided to seek couple’s counseling at Cadabam’s. The team of therapists and psychologists helped us build back our relationship and taught us how to communicate better and reduce conflicts in our day to day life.

I used to run around to consult different professionals for cmy son’s treatment. At Cadabam’s, it was so much more convenient. From psychiatrists to rehabilitation, they had it all. I am really happy with how they have helped my son and I can see immense changes in him.

What really struck me was how polite and understanding the professionals were. We availed home care services from Cadabams and the professional was so understanding. They took their time, spoke to all the members, and gave us an in-depth understanding of the illness. We have now started coming in for regular sessions. It’s worth it!

It was the first time we had faced something like this. Our daughter was going through immense strain and wasn’t responding to anything we said. That was when we contacted Cadabams, and we were surprised by how prompt they were with treatment. They treated our situation as an emergency and took immense care of our daughter.

What is psychiatry?

Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. Doctors and medical staff who specialize in psychiatry must be familiar with both the social and biological sciences that impact the mind.

What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

While both psychologists and psychiatrists help patients deal with mental health issues and improve their mental health, they both approach the subject very differently. Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour and psychologists study how human beings think, behave and feel in different social settings. Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of mental illness, emotional disturbances, and abnormal behaviour. Psychiatrists look at the various biological, neurological and biochemical factors that can cause mental illnesses and prescribe medications to treat them. Psychiatrists treat mental issues through medications whereas psychologists are not authorised to prescribe medications and instead treat patients through therapies. A psychologist can have a Ph.D. in philosophy or a degree in counselling psychology. They typically do 1 to 2 years of internship before commencing their practice. Psychiatrists, on the other hand, are medical doctors graduating from medical school and have completed years of medical internship in the assessment and treatment of mental health diseases.

What does a psychiatrist do?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating those with mental health illnesses. Psychiatrists have the qualifications to assess both mental and physical aspects of various psychological problems. As part of their work, a psychiatrist can:

  • Help you understand and manage long-term mental health issues
  • Prescribe medications if needed
  • Admit you to a healthcare facility or hospital if needed
  • Work with you individually or with your partner, family, or guardian

Psychiatrists can perform or refer you to other resources that carry out a full range of medical laboratory and psychological tests to understand the patient’s physical and mental state. They might also look into the patient’s genetics and family history to make a diagnosis and develop appropriate treatment plans.

When to see a psychiatrist?

How to recognize the signs that you need psychiatric help? Here are some scenarios that may trigger the need of an appointment with psychiatry doctors

  • Prolonged stress and anxiety
    Be it a job interview, a personal relationship or family problems, stress and anxiety can originate due to many different reasons. Stress and anxiety, if not treated and diagnosed properly, can lead to social isolation, depression, and various other problems. With the help of a psychiatrist, patients can better manage stress and anxiety by finding the source or cause of your problems, as well as the correct ways to overcome them.
  • Prolonged depression
    People often confuse depression with general sadness. Feelings of helplessness or hopelessness are often characterized by depression. People cannot just snap out of depression and they need proper diagnosis and treatment. If you or a loved one are stuck in constantly negative thought patterns that you find it hard to break out of, seek the help of a psychiatrist.
  • Severe phobias
    Psychiatric help for phobias is required when it makes the patient unable to carry out daily tasks due to their phobia. There are patients who suffer from the phobia of eating or crowds or even socializing. In such cases, the doctors can help the patients
    get to the root of the problem and find a solution.
  • Unhealthy habits and addictions
    Addiction is a leading cause of mental illness. Alcohol, smoking or substance abuse can alter your brain chemistry leading to changes in the chemical makeup of the brain that finally causes mental illnesses. When a person indulges in alcohol and drugs for a long period of time, they experience certain illusionary realities that make them indifferent to the happenings in the actual life. With the help of a psychiatrist doctor addiction and substance abuse problems can be warded off.
  • Loss or the Death of a loved one
    Many mental illnesses, especially in young people, can start with the death of close family members or friends. Even though it is a part of everyone’s life, it has been seen that people predisposed to mental illness often seem to alienate themselves and struggle to deal with the realities of the loss of a loved one. With the help of psychiatry doctors, the patient can work towards getting over the feelings of loss.

Conditions that psychiatrists treat

Patients who exhibit symptoms of mental health disorders that are affecting their quality of life and relationships should pay a visit to a Psychiatrist or a Psychiatric counsellor. Psychiatrists are equipped to diagnose and treat a range of mental health conditions such as:

  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Mood or anxiety disorders
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Depression
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD

Post-diagnosis, the psychiatrist lets the patient and their family know the causes of the disease with proper insights. Usually, when patients need psychiatric help for depression or other mental health conditions the underlying causes can be:
Hormonal disturbances, nutritional and lifestyle choices, inherited condition from family members and relatives, illnesses or chronic conditions.
2. Psychological:
Excessive stress or pressure, Unresolved childhood trauma
3. Social:
Personal relationship or work issues, economic or financial problems, substance abuse issues
