Hope you are involved in some activity or the other, else would request you to occupy your time in something which you like. Also you may explore at pursuing your hobbies and may spend some time with your friends. Mind you should always share your mind with your close ones maybe friends to release yourself.

Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT), Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (BOT)
Occupational Therapist, Delhi
Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Psychiatric treatment is never in the hands of a single person. Mental health treatment is a collaborative effort between the psychiatrist, occupational therapist, individual and his or her support system. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to engage people in some sort of activity to enhance their ability to lead a meaningful life. This need not be restricted to work but can include simple things like cooking, exercising, painting etc.

To understand what kind of treatment a patient needs, an occupational therapist will first assess the person, their needs and concerns. They understand how an illness or a particular life event can impact a person's ability to perform routine tasks. The counselor and therapist will then work together with the patient to explore possible lifestyle changes and set goals related to this. These changes are centered around the patient's strengths and preferences and take into consideration the occupations that are the most meaningful to the patient. An occupational therapist can then help the patient develop the necessary skills and find ways to make their daily lifestyle easier to handle. Thus, their lives become meaningful and satisfying and they feel a sense of achievement.

Occupational therapists also address social barriers towards the rehabilitation of a person in a community. This is done through interventions that focus on building the patient's existing skill set, creating opportunities for social integration, preventing a relapse and modifying the environment. Some of the barriers it addresses include:

  1. Stigma: By providing the patient with an opportunity to master a skill, occupational therapy boosts self confidence. This helps address the stigma against people with mental difficulties being able to form strong interpersonal relationships.
  2. Safety: A person suffering from a mental disorder is often understood to not be able to take care of himself. By helping the patient create routines for himself and giving him the confidence to perform daily tasks like cooking etc, he is at a much lower risk of accidents than before.
  3. Socioeconomic status: By giving the patient the necessary skill set to hold a job and collaborating with employers and educators, an occupational therapist can help raise a person's socioeconomic status.

Occupational therapy can benefit any person diagnosed with a mental illness or who has recently undergone a traumatic accident. It can also benefit this person's friends and family who form his support system by teaching them how to balance their caregiving with daily responsibilities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatry and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate-user kasif. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Lybrate-user - you have to realise that not everyone can and will think like you. If you are basing your happiness on what people do according to your wish, then i'm sorry you will be sad always. The key to happiness is - set goals for yourself - do what you can do to the best of your capacity and cherish your achievements. It is good to have a different thinking and choice, but you can not impose your thinking on others. All of us want to be loved by others, but unless you love yourself and love others, it is unlikely people will appreciate what you do. Make a list of all that you want to do - write them on a paper. Pick up something that is easiest for you to do- most achievable, then go on to the next. This will help make you a strong person.

My mother underwent Burhole surgery for SDH after an accident in July 2016. She was insulin dependent diabetic for the past 15 years and also hypertension patient. Previously she was under medication with ecosprin, statins along with anti hypertensives and diabetic medication. From the last few months after discharge from hospital, She had been under medication with levetiracetam 500 (Twice daily), Metosartan 50 (Twice daily), Syndopa 110 (1/2 Tablet twice daily), Human Mixtard (20 units twice daily, Glycomet GP2 (twice daily) and Nexito forte at bedtime. Till recent past i.e up to 03/12/2016, she was given Colihinz 400 in the morning along with Clobazam 5 in addition to the above drugs. Though she is recovered on physical side, There has been continuous agitation, aggression and hallucinations, She feel as if she sees persons not present before us, feels as if hearing voices and sounds not heard by us. She fears of the traumatic incidents in respect of her relatives, snakebites or somebody belonging to offspring is attacked etc. She suffers from exertion and tremors at that time. Now most of the this condition is being observed. Is there any medical treatment for bringing her out of the hallucinations.

Following head injury, behavioral changes or changes in personality are quite common. She seems to be having some psychotic symptoms. Please take her to a neuropsychiatrist immediately. with the right medication it is likely her symptoms will improve. Given her significant medical and surgical history, it is recommended that she is assessed in person rather than taking advice online.

I fear I will lose my parents within very few days. I had only 5 people, mom dad grandfather and mother and maternal uncle, whom I loved purely and they loved me purely. I didn't get love from any other relatives. I tried loving them, but I didn't get back any (family issues) I lost my grandfather in 2010 and unexpectedly I lost my maternal uncle (who was half of my heart) in 2013. Since then grandma is residing here with us. I have a negative thinking that I suffer from the worst possible lucks. And it's not only just a concept, but it has been proven! I don't have friends, I mean I have friends, but NOT REAL ONES. I am a love failure, ditched. I was also. Wrongly blamed for few things and I lost most of my prestige without a reason. So I just have mom dad and grandma, without whom I cannot imagine my life. I know my grandma will leave us sooner or later, and it's acceptable, because she is more than 70 years old! But I can't control losing my mom and dad. When my uncle died, we went on a holiday previously in that year and the entire year was a happy one until November, when I lost my uncle! We have been happy this year as well, spending a holiday (which is extremely rare for us) previously this year! I feel something bad will happen soon. And I can't afford to lose my parents or mother now! I feel this all day, especially at night! I am Mentally disturbed I have never spoken about this to anyone, neither can I speak about it now.

Hello You seem to have anxiety and depression due to negative presumptions based on your past. Try consulting a clinical psychologist for regular counselling sessions. It is all due to high negative thinking and it can be taken care of by psychotherapy.
