Psychiatry Hospital in Kerala


According to a Deloitte survey, mental health issues in India constitute about 15% of the global mental health disorder burden. Such a considerable percentage is mainly attributed to inadequate medical care. This lag in medical care is not because of a lacuna in psychiatric care quality but because of the general stigma associated with mental health issues. To break this stigma, Caritas Hospital has designed a unique package that offers an inclusive approach towards patients with behavioral or mental health issues. Such an approach invites a massive footfall of care-seekers at our premises, which has eventually helped us become one of the best psychiatry hospitals in Kerala.

The psychiatry department at Caritas Hospital is a specialized healthcare institution that provides evidence-based preventive and therapeutic treatment of mental disorders. Our target is to offer quality services in psychiatric care including geriatric and pediatric care with a calm atmosphere, privacy and respect.

Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers are experts in their fields who treat various conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder (manic depression), schizophrenia, dementia, childhood mental disorders and substance use disorder.

As regarded as one of the best psychiatry hospitals in Kerala, the main objective of Caritas Hospital is to raise awareness of mental health issues, which are often underestimated in our society. Our approach is to help individuals break out of their shells and talk about their mental health issues voluntarily rather than do it out of obligation. We believe what we preach and conduct frequent employee mental health awareness programs. This helps our experts and staff to be in the best state to facilitate all-round mental health for our visitors.
