Psychiatric Specialist Physician Services Hermina Pasteur Hospital
Mental health problems are still taboo in Indonesian society and are often associated with myths in some areas. A mental health specialist is an expert in the field of mental health, including the symptoms that arise from the use of certain substances and illegal drugs. Mental health problems also include emotional & behavioral disorders, panic attacks, visual and auditory hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, and excessive worry that interferes with the quality of daily life.
The role of a mental health specialist is to provide psychological therapy, both from the aspect of drugs and psychosocial interventions with the aim of eliminating/controlling disturbing symptoms so that a person's quality of life increases.
