Our Treatments

Psychiatry helps treat a range of mental conditions ranging from mental illness through to neurodevelopmental disorders and the recovery from serious traumas and accidents. Diagnosis is undertaken by specialists in this field who generally recommend courses of medicine-based treatments coupled with supporting therapies such as counselling or group discussions.
