In today’s competitive and fast-paced world, stress is turning out to be one of the biggest problems. Long periods of stress lead to anxiety and can eventually lead to depression. Stress also has physical manifestations in the form of high BP, diabetes and many other chronics and autoimmune disorders. So much so that a major portion of the work of the psychiatrists at Manipal Hospital these days consists of providing de-stress therapy to professionals.

The Department of Psychiatry at Manipal Hospitals has been set up with a mission to deal with the myriad problems of mental health. The disorders of the mind can be classified as effective, cognitive, behavioral and perceptual. If left untreated, these disorders can become complicated and can adversely affect social behavior and interpersonal relationships in patients. Besides stress therapy, psychiatric disorders such as depression due to the chronic and terminal illness are treated here. Treatment is provided in the form of psychotherapy, relaxation therapy, and medication. Other than anxiety, depression, and stress-related issues; the department also provides counseling in matters of sex, marital relations, alcohol & substance dependence, and various child and adolescence issues. The team of psychiatrists and psychoanalysts at Manipal Hospitals has earned a reputation of being friendly and approachable. They have at their command the latest equipment to assess mental functioning. Special emphasis is laid on detailed medical, emotional and psychological evaluation before the start of treatment.


A variety of treatments in the form of psychoanalysis, therapy, and medication is provided for the following:


  • Child and adolescence problems
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Suicidal ideas or attempts
