MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Dr.Chitra Singh is a psychiatrist whose passion is her occupation. Although, she has a keen interest in and practices all specialities of psychiatry. She is specially trained in women mental health issues, young age psychiatric disorder (neurotic and psychotic), deaddiction and use of r-TMS in different psychiatric disorder. Dr.Chitra stress on diagnosis because it will explain all aspects of illness like nature, needs of treatment, investigations, management plan (pharmacological and non-pharmacological) duration of treatment, need of rehabilitation, cause and prognosis. Apart from using medicines, her strength lies in practicing non pharmacological (Psychotherapy, Cognitive Therapy, Behaviour Therapy, etc). She engages in public awareness activities and has an approach of problem solving. While treating a patient, her principal is to maintain on minimum possible medication and maximum functional improvement in personal, social and occupational life. The goal of these activities is to spread awareness about mental health issues and reduce associated social stigma. Psychiatric disorder is just like the medical disease. Psychiatry, as seen by her is less about stigma and more about leading a happy and successful life.
