Suffering from depression and obsessive thinking. Not able to concentrate. Whom can I consult?

Hello, I would very much like to see a psychiatrist in Kerala. My son has been suffering with depression and obsessive thinking which he cannot get rid off. He finds it difficult to concentrate and really he has given up hope of getting better. We are planning to come to Kerala towards the end of January so would be grateful for a name of a good doctor we could see. Thank you.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that you are concerned about your son's psychiatric problems. It is indeed a good decision which you have take to take him to a psychiatrist for consultation. I would suggest Dr. C.J John who practices at Medical Trust Hospital, Ernakulam. He is a senior and well-experienced psychiatrist, and is easily approachable.

Don't worry, there are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome these depressive and obsessive thoughts. So, please go ahead with your plan of consulting a psychiatrist for your son's problems.

Wish you all the best.
