The Department of Psychiatry at Manipal Hospitals has been set up with a mission to deal with the myriad problems of mental health. The disorders of the mind can be classified as affective, cognitive, behavioural and perceptual. If left untreated, these disorders can become complicated and can adversely affect social behaviour and interpersonal relationships in patients. In today’s competitive and fast paced world, stress is turning out to be one of the biggest problems. Long periods of stress lead to anxiety and can eventually lead to depression. Stress also has physical manifestations in the form of high BP, diabetes and many other chronic and auto immune disorders.
