Seeing a psychiatrist is no longer stigmatized, in fact it is a must in the 20th century, with three psychiatric illnesses among the World Health Organization’s top-10 list of the leading causes of disability in the world. In particular, depression is expected to take over heart disease in the year 2020 as the number-one leading cause of disability.
The symptoms of mental disorders can have a significant impact on a person’s enjoyment of life and, in some cases, on their ability to function and cope with day-to-day tasks. Treatment through therapy or medication, or both, can address and alleviate these symptoms. Seeking help is not an admission of weakness, but the first step towards understanding and finding relief from distressing symptoms.
We have psychiatrist to treat patients of all ages. Many have extensive experience in working with adults to treat depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, gender identity disorder, addiction and many other conditions. In addition we have psychiatrists who specialize or sub-specialize in treating children and adolescents for psychiatric conditions as well as the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities, hyperactivity, autism, behavioral difficulties and intellectual disability.
We also have family counselling, marital therapy and therapy for parents of children with psychiatric conditions.
