In our Psychiatry Department, as in all our other units, our aim is not to shut down/exclude people whose social functioning is impaired, but to ensure that people who are ill are cured as soon as possible and become healthy and functional individuals.
Although psychiatry is called "mental medicine" in Turkish, it deals only with the brain. All treatment methods, including psychotherapy, work on the brain (and only on the brain).
SYMPTOMS OF PSYCHIATRIC PATIENTS
They occur in various forms as a result of perception disorders, interpretation disorders and behavioural disorders. From various auditory and visual hallucinations to megalomanic delusions about themselves or thoughts of worthlessness and inadequacy, repetitive thoughts and repetitive behaviours that they cannot prevent, a wide range of behaviour and thought disorders related to different diseases occur.
