General psychiatry

Our general psychiatry programme is designed for those experiencing a range of mental health struggles, including depression, anxiety, bipolar mood disorder, and PTSD. This programme has a strong group and skill-building focus, and incorporates individual therapy too.

Who will benefit from this programme?

Adults suffering from one or more symptoms associated with psychiatric illnesses – including major depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar mood disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorder, or mild psychosis – may be referred to the general psychiatry programme.

This programme is also designed to help patients cope through crisis periods in their lives, like the death of a spouse or child, a divorce, or other relationship conflicts.

An integrated approach

In keeping with the integrated treatment philosophy we practice at our facilities, each of our general psychiatry patients are treated by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals. We provide fully holistic and personalised treatment to each person in our care, in order to achieve the best outcomes for them.

Multiple types of therapy and treatment are incorporated into each patient's care, providing a holistic and integrated approach to mental healthcare that's centered around each patient, their unique needs, and their specific diagnosis or diagnoses.

The dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) model

Dialectical behaviour therapy, more commonly known as DBT, is a type of cognitive behavioural therapy used in psychotherapy. It’s highly effective and helps to treat many mental health disorders such as depression, substance abuse disorders, borderline personality disorder, and many more.

The main theory behind DBT is that people are often more likely to react strongly or in a way that is concerning only in particular situations. These emotional situations occur mainly in relationships with family, romantic partners, or friends. Among other things, DBT teaches people with these intense arousal levels how to manage their stress, their distress, and their emotional reactions in order to cope better with these often destructive emotional surges.
