Fear, worry, and stress are normal responses to threats and challenges. At a time when we are faced with dire uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic, fear and stress are at an all-time high. The fear of contracting the virus is utmost in our minds nowadays. However, the disruptive changes in daily lives are also leading to extreme stress. Added to these, are the realities like working from home, job loss, online classes for children, and maintaining social distance with other family members, friends, and colleagues. In such a scenario it becomes highly imperative that we seriously look after our mental health. It is also crucial to drop inhibitions and seek mental health experts as and when needed.

If you are experiencing fear, anxiety, and stress which seem beyond control, do consult a psychiatrist online for availing care and treatment. You can consult a psychiatrist online, on the ‘Online Doctor Consultation’ section on DocGenie , or find some contact email list here for a Psychiatrist. We have some of the best psychiatrists in India who are ready to offer online consultation. Our doctors are specially trained to assess both physical and mental health aspects of psychological conditions. Our highly qualified and experienced doctors will ensure that all your mental health conditions are taken care of with effectiveness and empathy. Also, while psychiatrists and psychologists both treat depression, for severe cases of depression, you should talk to a psychiatrist. There are highly qualified psychiatrists in Delhi who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of emotional, behavioral, and mental disorders.

Psychiatrists treat a range of mental health conditions –

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Addiction to gambling
  • Drugs and alcohol addiction
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Phobias
  • Frequent nightmares
  • Need help to manage a long-term mental health condition
  • Diagnosed with mental disorders such as schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder

Emotional and psychological issues are generally categorized into mental illnesses, personality disorders, and severe learning disabilities. Psychiatrists treat mental health issues like anxiety either through psychotherapy or medication. Psychotherapy is all about using psychological methods, while medication includes prescribing medicines to treat the condition. At times, the two work well together. Psychiatrists decide the course of treatment according to the severity or nature of your condition. If your treatment plan includes medication, your doctor will suggest the appropriate medication and dose. Remember! If you are experiencing any of the above-mentioned issues you should consult a psychiatrist immediately. As part of the treatment psychiatrists in Delhi also offer psycho-education relating to the diagnosis, course, treatment, and prognosis of the disorder. This helps in better treatment outcomes.

Our psychiatrists can also prescribe medications for any other diagnosable mental disorders like –

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic attacks
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sleep disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychotic behavior
  • Eating or personality disorder

In India, discussions on mental health issues are still taboo which often thwarts individuals from seeking professional help. This is an alarming trend. Left untended, mental health issues can turn severe and lead to dismal consequences like suicide and self-harm. A busy lifestyle also keeps us from visiting psychiatrists, attending therapy sessions, or connecting with a mental health doctor when needed. In this scenario, online consultation with psychiatrists comes as a highly effective and useful solution. You can consult a psychiatrist online and keep the consultations very personal, private, secure, accessible, and instant.

An online chat with a doctor whenever you need one is the most beneficial aspect of online consultations. Psychiatrists in Delhi are always ready to assist you when you need them and deliver the best possible treatment.

All psychiatrists on DocGenie are highly qualified with at least a Doctor of Medicine degree in Psychiatry, in addition to an MBBS. Online sessions with psychiatrists vary from 25 to 45 minutes in duration, depending on your case. Often additional sessions are recommended for continued care. In such a case, the therapist normally suggests a date and time for the next session. On DocGenie entire sessions are secure and confidential and we follow a very strict privacy policy. The platform offers chat, audio, and video facilities. However, our doctors mostly prefer a video consultation to start with.

Behavioral patterns of people suffering from mental health issues vary to a great extent. Hence, it is important to consult a professional medical expert to comprehend the situation. If you spot any mental health signs, think of an online chat with a doctor or a psychiatrist immediately. Moreover, you must also consult a mental health expert in case you are experiencing neurotic symptoms that are associated with mental illness.
