Psychiatry Clinic

Presently, mental health issues are no longer distant concerns. According to a survey conducted by the Department of Mental Health in the year 2021, Thais aged 15 and above with a history of receiving medical attention for depression reached up to 1.5 million people. Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that depression will become the second leading global health issue by the year 2029.
 
The most disquieting aspect is that a significant number of Thais either do not recognize or refuse to acknowledge their mental health issues. While some are aware, they hesitate to seek medical help, fearing the social stigma of entering a mental health clinic. The survey reveals that around 10-15% of Thais currently experience mental health problems, but only 1% are willing to consult with mental health professionals. Contrary to common fears, seeking psychiatric help is not intimidating or embarrassing. On the contrary, seeking treatment can address mental health issues promptly, allowing individuals to regain a good quality of life and find happiness in their lives.
 
MedPark Hospital's Psychiatry Clinic prioritizes providing assistance, alleviating anxiety, providing treatment, and addressing mental health problems for those seeking consultation from psychiatrists. The clinic offers diagnostic examinations, counseling, medication, and therapeutic activities for outpatients (OPD) through a team of experienced psychiatrists with a long history of patient care. These professionals are well-regarded and internationally recognized in the field of psychiatry. They provide counseling with empathy, allocate sufficient time for consultations, and employ various techniques such as medication, psychotherapy, behavioral adjustment, and occupational therapy.
 
Mental health problems stem from various factors, including congenital abnormalities, environmental influences, changes in brain neurotransmitters, and hormonal imbalances triggered by events. The fluctuating emotions may be sudden or gradual, such as stress, grief, loss, fear, confusion, hopelessness, paranoia, and deliriousness, including behaviors and personalities, such as depressed feelings, restlessness, poor concentration, apathy, delusion, and aggression also play a role. Seeking consultation with experienced psychiatrists who possess a deep understanding of the true nature of mental health issues can help identify the root causes of illness and mental health problems. Moreover, receiving appropriate treatment tailored to the specific disease and patient yields the most effective outcomes.
