Diagnosis

 

The biggest challenge that most people with mental disorders face is the diagnosis. The symptoms and signs that a person might exhibit are not easy to point out. Thus, making it more difficult for the doctor to identify it too.

Signs and Symptoms of Mental Illnesses

As mentioned earlier, it can be difficult to point out when exactly a person is suffering from mental illnesses. But some signs and symptoms might be:

  • Noticeable withdrawals from social gatherings and an unexpected drop in performance at work, school, etc.
  • Intensified sensitivity to sounds, smells or touches.
  • A fall/complete drop in taking initiative in any particular activity.
  • Rapid mood swings.
  • Abnormal, peculiar behaviour.
  • Insomnia
  • A vague feeling of feeling disconnected from one’s surroundings or circumstances.
  • Problems with concentration, memories or logical thought processes that are difficult to explain.

 

It must be noted that these are just a few symptoms that have been listed to help you understand whether you or someone around you is undergoing a mental illness. It is always advisable to seek professional help rather than rely on the internet for your cure.

 

At Apollo Clinic, there are numerous highly skilled and experienced psychiatrists and psychologists who will be at your service. They provide a wide range of diagnostic, psychotherapeutic and medical services for the understanding and treatment of mental disorders.

There are a large variety of therapies that could benefit children, young adolescents, adults as well as the geriatric (persons who face disorders such as delirium and dementia).
