Y a Psychiatrist is Taboo
Doctor Answers (1) on Y a Psychiatrist is Taboo
you have asked a very valid question. Yes it is still a taboo to meet a psychiatrist in our country. Anything related to mind is considered as weakness and could not be shared with anyone, but the suffering goes on. There are some myths associated with psychiatric treatments.
e.g once you take a medicine, you have to take it life long, you become addicted to it, it will change your thinking etc.
But everyone needs to understand mental health is more important than anything else.
