Psychiatry

Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. The trauma from accidents and disasters, or mental stress from work or study may cause symptoms of insomnia, depression, and anxiety. These symptoms can be originated from both physical problems such as pain or hormones and mental problems such as excessive tension or anxiety. Living with these symptoms can badly affect the working, daily lives, and even human relationships.

In the early stage, the Department of Psychiatry relieves symptoms by medication and then helps the patient not to depend on medication through continuous consultation and treatment. Through treatment, patients can regain their mental and physical health and return to hopeful life.

■ Clinic Info.

  • ㅇ. PTSD Clinic
    Post-traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) is a mental health condition caused by very stressful, frightening, or distressing events. PTSD patients usually show symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, or nightmares. Most patients experience these symptoms in the early stage of the accidents, but some patients have difficulties in returning to daily lives due to continuous symptoms for more than a month. As these symptoms can lead to other severe symptoms such as depression, anger, and a sense of guilt, and are not easy to treat, early detection and treatment are very important.
    We help burn patients with rapid burn treatment through early detection and treatment of PTSD-related symptoms. If PTSD-related symptoms are left unattended, it can lead to chronic insomnia or social avoidance, so it is wise to be careful.
