Patient Care


We treat psychological, behavioral, and mental health issues by a multidisciplinary team, using a judicious mix of various evidence-based scientific treatment methods.

Now, for clarification of the above statement:

Psychological issues:

distressing experiences of mind, causing difficulties in personal, psychosocial, and occupational functioning.
Behavioral issues:

Visible behaviours are problematic and interfere with personal, psychosocial, and occupational functioning.

Mental health issues:

Traditionally, mental illness or mental disorders.
The international classification of diseases by the World Health Organisation, lists various conditions as mental and behavioural disorders. Traditionally, they are also called mental illnesses and constitute the core of the psychiatric speciality.

At Vazhikatti, the treating team consists of psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists, occupational therapists, psychiatric social workers, and mental health nurses, who are all qualified and experienced in their respective aspects of providing care.

This team approach, meets the care needs of the patient and their family members, in all the important dimensions of mental health care—biological, psychological, and social. Hence, it is also called the Bio-Psycho-Social model of care.
The Team:
A team is a group of individuals working together to achieve a goal. At Vazhikatti, the multidisciplinary team members work together to provide the best possible care to our patients.
Evidence-based scientific treatment:
At Vazhikatti, treatment decisions are optimised based on the evidence from well designed and well conducted research, in the field of psychiatry, around the world.
A judicious mix of treatment methods:
We provide highly individualised treatment depending on the nature and severity of the conditions and the underlying causes. The causes may be multiple and they may vary from individual to individual depending on age, sex, education, occupation, location, health and socioeconomic status, etc. Hence, treatment has to be personalised and optimised to meet the needs of the individual and also his family and life circumstances. This may involve counselling, pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, psychosocial interventions, lifestyle interventions, etc., in varying combinations. That is what we call the judicious mix of treatment methods.
