Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, affective, and behavioural disorders. A psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in mental health, including substance use disorders. Medicover Hospitals are committed to enhancing the mental health of every child and adolescent in our community while also assisting parents, caregivers, and other family members. We are dedicated to assisting people in recovering from substance abuse in a secure and pleasant setting. Our psychiatrists have worked in some of the most prestigious national and international institutions, managing a wide range of mental diseases. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems. This may include a physical exam, laboratory tests, and/or a psychological evaluation.
