I am male 30 software programmer for 3 years (and I done many jobs before), I resigned job because of low salary ,now i am depressed lost interest in everything ,i have no motivation to find another job, i am simply sitting in my home, my dream is to become financially independent so that I do not have to worry about money anymore. Most time I thing about suicide. I have no interest to continue this life. What to do? please reply.

Hello Shibin Resigning jobs, losing hope or suicide is not the answer. If you really want to be financially independent you have to work towards it. Also u need to enjoy your work, it has to give you satisfaction only then will u excel in it. Find out what interests you and then find a job relating to it. You might not find it instantly but if u see a future , stick to it and climb the ladder. If you interested in business n not job u can think on those lines. 30 is too young to die, there's a whole life full of opportunities ahead , so prove urself, for those who think u can't. Most important thing is patience, and things will improve. Sitting at home won't give u a job or money so u have to work towards it. It's not that difficult, just a matter of time. Just keep trying... like most of the people.. All the best. ! If u need help do get in touch with me.

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. Obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) is characterized by unreasonable fears or obsessions that cause a person to engage in compulsive behaviors to minimize or relieve their anxiety. Ocd can range from mild to severe and it can also be accompanied by other mental health issues. Coping with ocd can be difficult, especially the sufferer is not seeking professional help. Psychiatrists use different kinds of therapy and medication to treat people with ocd. Ocd patients can also do things like keep a journal, join a support group, and use relaxation techniques to help them cope with ocd. If you think that you might have ocd, you should seek professional help from a mental health professional. Keep reading to learn more about how to cope with obsessive compulsive disorder. Ocd causes lots of stress and anxiety. Therapy and medication may help to relieve some of your negative feelings, but you should also take time to relax every day. Incorporating activities like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, aromatherapy, and other soothing techniques will help you cope with your stress and anxiety make sure to take the medications that your psychiatrist prescribes exactly as directed. Do not skip, stop, or increase your dosage without talking to your psychiatrist first.

There are depression rating scales to assess the severity. Not all people with depression need to take life long medications, only this who have chronic depression need to. Those with depressive episode especially first and second episode can be treated with a course of medications for few months. All the best.

Psychiatric And Behavioral Disorders - An Overview

Good Morning! I’m Dr Asif Iqbal Ahmed, MD Psychiatry from Armed Forces Medical College. I served as a psychiatrist for 25 years in Indian Navy in the army medical corp. After retirement, I set up psycare a comprehensive mental health facility. Psycare is care and cure center for mental and behavioral disorders.

Unfortunately, mental illnesses are not understood as such. It is not understood that these are Biopsychosocial medical illnesses. There’s a biological component based in the brain. Psychological and social factors cause these illnesses to be precipitated. They can eminently treated with the combination of psychotherapy which in layman’s term is known as counseling and medication if required.

Now in Psycare, we have a team which provides these services. The focus is on total recovery by providing the best possible care and the mortality which is most appropriate. If they are treatable why is it said the indian counsel of medical research report of 2016 says that nearly 90% of people go untreated. Actually the reason, the chief reason for this is social stigma. Unfortunately as I said earlier, they are not understood as illnesses. Most of the people take is resulting from neither character flaws, evil spirits. These persons are considered as mental or as mad which is very unfortunate, hence people do not seek even the available resources which are rare.

There is a huge shortage of mental health care facilities. You would have heard of escorts for cardiology, IRPS for liver diseases but other than few eminent institutions like Nimhans of Banglore, IHBAS shahadra of Dehli. Have you heard of a mental health care organization or institution? The other reason for not receiving treatment is acute shortage of mental health professors. It’s said, it’s estimated that India needs something like 1lac psychiatrists whereas we’re only 6thousand and hence people go untreated. I’m happy to inform you that psycare has made an impact.

We are the first facility in a long time to have received the state mental health authority license of earning a mental health care facility which earlier to be known as rehab centers. We’re the psychiatric nursing home. Our medical practices have been accredited where the national board of accreditation quality counsel of India. I’m happy to inform you that recently in the last month, we have received international recognition that European medical association has accepted as a reliable health care providers and awarded us with the best medical practice in the European medical association London. The services that we provide are outpatient and inpatient facility. The inpatient facilities are wards which are separate for dealing with male patients as well as female patients.

We also run community outreach programs where we reach to the schools conduct awareness programs about things like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, bullying, internet addiction and the like. We also run corporate wellness programs wherein we teach employees about stress management and higher management is also made aware of human resource issues which can impact mental health. The illnesses that we deal with range from schizophrenia, mania, depression, anxiety disorder like obsessive-compulsive order, adjustment disorder, addictive disorder are a major scourge of the society now. They are known as dependence and dependence can be two substances like alcohol, cocaine these days increasingly weed and cannabis and you can have behavioral addiction like net addiction, gambling and the like. So, those patients who are treated in outpatient are treated with medication and counseling and the patient who need to be admitted have rehabilitative services which help them run their lives 24 hours 24/7 so that they can need a healthy life outside.

Depressive illness is a medical/psychiatric illness that can be treated effectively by antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy. So one has to see a psychiatrist. Kindly ask your psychiatrist to change the medications and do cbt or change the psychiatrist at the earliest. Psychiatrist after assessment and evaluation will decide on the best antidepressant medication that is suitable to you. These antidepressant medications are not sedatives or addictive in a nature. The course may last for 4-6 months depending upon the severity of the illness.
