Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the study,
diagnosis, treatment of mental disorders. It also includes not only the prevention of mental disorders but also promotion of positive mental health..
Your brain is the master organ that controls the release of various chemicals, which either makes you feel good, ecstatic,
elated OR bad, frustrated, dependant, restless and uneasy.
For years this medical specialty has been ignored. But due to rapid change in lifestyles and the resulting stress, the psychological health has become vital, now.
Also the rising numbers of stress-related physical illnesses is testimony to this. It is said, “Mens sana in corpore sano” meaning ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’.
Hence the power of a positive and healthy mind and its contribution to an individual’s overall health cannot be overlooked. The need of our time, therefore,
is to give mental health equal if not greater importance, as we give to our physical health. It is also crucial that we improve upon oneself to achieve greater outputs.
