Meet Our Team Of Schizophrenia Psychiatrists

Overview

One of the main disabilities caused by Schizophrenia is a detachment from reality. Due to hallucinations, delusions and more, individuals are often not in control of their senses and their actions. In such situations, they are also not in a position to seek help, even though they need it. The need for assistance is exponentially increased when the individuals become a threat to themselves and the people around them. This is when the situation becomes a psychiatric emergency.

In such a situation, it is the responsibility, and the safest course of action for their loved ones to seek immediate medical attention. This could be with a psychiatrist, or at a dedicated mental health hospital. At Cadabam’s, we have a diverse team of professionals consisting of psychiatrists, senior registrars, psychologists, counselors and more. Together, they offer the most comprehensive emergency care for psychiatric illnesses in the country.

What is a psychiatric emergency?

A psychiatric emergency is a sudden change in a patient’s behaviour, thinking, or mood that, if left untreated, could cause harm to the patient or those in the surroundings. As a result, unlike other medical emergencies, the danger of harm to society is also considered when defining a psychiatric emergency. Major emergencies include a threat to the person’s life or the lives of others in their environment, while mild emergencies pose no threat to life but inflict significant suffering.

What to do in case of a psychiatric emergency?

The first thing is to de-escalate the situation through talks. Avoid confrontation no matter what. Then seek help from your nearest healthcare provider and follow their advice throughout the process.
