   Psychiatric Practice in India-Some personal Observations Top


Dr. A.K.Agarwal M.D.,D.P.M.

Outcome of psychiatric education and research is its implementation in clinical practice and how it has helped our population. Psychiatric theory and practice have developed in leaps and bound since Independence, yet it seems to have not proved effective over the years. The National Mental health survey points out that there is a huge gap between needs of the population and the mental health services. Most of it could be blamed on poor Mental health infrastructure, yet those who do receive help are not usually sufficiently treated. There are multiple issues that effect psychiatric practice ibn India which are specific to this country and some are like other countries. This presentation will discuss some of the following areas.

Poor availability of psychiatric services in India

Perception of mental disorders as illness or conditions that require treatment in India.

Stigma associated with psychiatric illness.

Multiple treatment modalities like Ayurveda, Unani, Homeopathy, faith healing, Yoga and others

Poor training of psychiatrists during Post graduate training program for psychiatric practice

Gap in research and its application in clinical practice

Issues specific to psychiatry

Diagnostic reliability

Biological vs psychological treatments

Patients acceptance of psychiatric treatment

Family's approach to psychiatric treatment

Chronic nature of psychiatric illnesses

Burn out in psychiatrists

These issues will be discussed in relation to current day psychiatric practice in India
