I spend hours sitting and thinking about even very small problem, due to this, I m unable to concentrate on my work and I also noticed that my hairs are falling and some startimg to white.

My age is 30 yrs. Because of my circumstances, I have bad habit from my child age. Even I though to die for having such things and praying for that only. Please help me, how I can come out of habit.
I don't take any thing responsibly. I will forget the things, amounts to be paid or received. I want to be responsible because I am elder in family.
Can we come out from any type of depression or frustration and it's symptoms like nervousness, unknown fear ? Is it possible to change thought process of a person ?

My sister is suffering from schizophrenia since year 2000. She is 32 year old at present. In year 2009, we started her medication from CMC vellore. They prescribed to take schiezodon 2 mg initially, later they asked to take 1 mg. Still she is taking 1 mg of schiezodone, however, she has not achieved the health like a normal person. She talks whatever we ask her, but doesn't reply/talk with same curiosity/ enthusiasm. Request for suggestion if any for further improvement.

I had a fun life a year ago. Had two close friends, a girl and a boy. We used to hangout with our friends every week and party quite frequently. We were too close as we shared many ups and downs of our lives together. But then I started liking the girl knowing the fact that those two love each other. And this somehow led me to become frustrated, irritated and reckless, which, at the end, resulted in a fight with them. The boy already left to his hometown 6 months back. I have been in touch with the girl, but always failed to behave normally to her. Now even she is leaving the city and moving back to her hometown. A lot of things coming into my mind, sadness, frustration, guilty and many more. This is effecting my work. Also, I feel directionless about my future. Having a difficult time. Feeling depressed. Can someone please help
Forensic psychiatry is generally identified as a specialized offshoot of psychiatry, dealing with the calculated treatment and evaluation of mentally disordered offenders in secure hospitals, prisons and in the community. This branch of psychiatry requires an indepth understanding and thorough knowledge of the connection between legality and mental health.
Patients of Forensic Psychiatry, generally are affected with personality dysfunctions, mental illness, psychopathic disorders, organic brain damage, learning disability and other conditions, such as histories of abuse and traumatic experiences as well as substance abuse and misuse.
Nature of the work
The most important prerequisite of this branch of psychiatry is a secure and safe environment where the subjects are liable to legal restrictions. Evaluation and assessment may vary from highly secured hospitals and prisons to low secure units and community based services. Forensic psychiatrists must have a thorough knowledge of civil, criminal and case law because of their frequent dealings with criminal justice agencies and the courts.
An important component of Forensic Psychiatry is risk assessment and evaluation. Forensic psychiatrists must be fluent and adept at handling patients during emergencies or routine situations. Moreover, they should be calm, composed and professional in their dealings, especially with patients who display instability or violent and aggressive behavior.
The probation service, the prison service and the courts generally rely on forensic psychiatrists for expert advice, precisely because of their familiarity with preparing reports for mental health review tribunals and criminal justice agencies.
- Quintessentially, the obligatory role of a forensic psychiatrist requires:
- Ability to treat others with understanding and respect
- Ability to work flexibly
- Emotional resilience along with the ability to empathize with patients
- Anticipation and an inherent initiative to work in challenging situations
- Good communication skills
- A scientific and analytic approach and assessment
- Good leadership qualities
