    Psychiatric medicine today is a vast field that incorporates many facets of the body and mind. It’s easy to know when you have a fever but difficult to identify a mental health problem. Mental health is how we think, feel and act as we cope with life. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Our brain is like any other part of our body, and mental illness is just like a physical disease.

    Like a physical illness, mental illness also needs care and treatment. And, like many physical illnesses, with the right treatment most people with mental disorders are able to live healthy and productive lives.
