When we hear about mental illness(s), many of us feel unhappy or uneasy because we do not try to understand that there are other illnesses like mental illness(s). Just like a heart or kidney, the brain is also an organ and when it does not function or respond in a manner that the brain should, then that would lead to various other mental problems/issues. Our psychologists have expertise in handling a variety of mental illnesses and disorders. Their education and strict clinical training program enable them to deal with various behaviors, feelings, and thoughts that disrupt the social, personal, or professional life of mental patients. They also use a variety of treatments to treat disorders, like for different and varied mental illness, drugs, psychological interventions, etc. Giving hope, healing, awareness for empowerment, and timely care plays a major role in the recovery from mental illness. So do not forget to ask for help with Dofody’s service.
