Introduction

At our brain sciences hospital, we recognize mental health as an integral component of overall well-being. The Psychiatry Department is a cornerstone of our healthcare services, focusing on the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders.
Understanding Mental Health

Mental health is not just the absence of illness but a state of complete well-being encompassing physical, mental, and social aspects. Globally, over 450 million people suffer from mental disorders, accounting for 12% of the global burden of diseases. Stigma, lack of awareness, delayed treatment-seeking behavior, and cultural beliefs pose significant challenges in addressing mental health issues.

Mind-Body Connection

The distinction between mind and body is artificial when considering health. Poor physical health can lead to mental health problems, and vice versa. For example, depression increases the risk of heart disease and cancer mortality. Schizophrenia is associated with higher mortality rates from heart and respiratory diseases.

Lifestyle Factors and Mental Health

Lifestyle choices profoundly impact physical and mental health. Exercise, in particular, plays a crucial role in promoting both. Physical activity releases endorphins, improving mood and cognitive function. From gardening to marathon running, any form of exercise enhances overall well-being.
