Psychiatry And Psychology
Department of Psychiatry
was started at Choithram hospital in 1979 with the beginning of
the hospital. The department was first in the Madhya Pradesh in
a private sector to start a full fledged unit.
The Department of Psychiatry provides a comprehensive integrated
multi-disciplinary service in the management of patients with psychological
or psychiatric disorders.
This unit offers intensive psychiatric care to individuals, including
patients with underlying medical complications. A multidisciplinary
treatment approach is used in which patients receive the benefit
of working with psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric
nurses, and occupational/recreational therapists. Extensive evaluation
of treatment needs is performed for all individuals and typically
includes pharmacotherapy, individual and group therapy, and milieu
treatment in an intensive setting. With the help of faculty of Choithram
College of Nursing we have started Multi-Disciplinary Behaviour
Intervention Unit for the benefit of patients.
