EMPOWERING YOU TO BE WELL & HAPPY !
Psychiatry or Psychological Medicine is a specialized field of medicine which deals with every aspect of mental health. It involves managing all types of behavioral, emotional and thought disorders. Psychiatry also has a broader role in preventing these disorders by promotion of good mental health practice. It aims to help individuals achieve their best abilities and improves their quality of lives.
Objectives of MindMedic.org:
1. To educate the general public about the importance of mental health.
2. To share information and latest findings about mental disorders.
3. To empower the people with knowledge of mental health and reducing
the stigma attached to individuals suffering from mental disorders.
4. To provide an easy access to local mental health services
Recent research showed 11% of Malaysians suffering from mental disorders. This is in keeping with statistics around the world where half a billion people (10% of population) have some form of mental disorders. It is a growing phenomenon with serious socioeconomic implication.
It is a widespread misconception that mental disorders are all about 'madness', and that an individual who seeks psychiatric help must therefore 'be mad'. The society must understand that mental disorders encompass a very large group of emotional, behavioral, thoughts and neurological disorders.
In fact, the commonest cases seen by a Psychiatrist are: children with learning disability, children with hyperactivity and autism, disciplinary problems, rebellious behaviour etc. Many adults with stress and sleep problems, anxiety, depression, drug/ alcohol abuse, relationship and sex issues, and dementia (eg. Alzheimer's disease) also seek professional care from Psychiatrist.
The last decade has seen tremendous growth in the field of Neuroscience that unraveled the causes of these disorders. The advancement of modern medicine has greatly improved treatment and prognosis of mental disorders.
