Mental health problems and behavioral issues have gained more prominence over the last few decades due to disruption in work-life balance, increase in perceived stress and changes in family structure/outlook of relationship. Psychiatric issues can reduce the quality of living which can decrease productivity and also either exacerbate or can lead to medical problems. Here at Apollo, the Department of psychiatry aims to provide a complete sense of mental and social well-being using its outpatient services.
