Dr. Rishikesh V Behere is a clinician and researcher in Psychiatry. As a clinician, he has been closely working on mental health issues related to stress and its effect on the human mind and providing professional scientific evidence based treatments. As a researcher, he firmly believes in 'Translational Research' where the benefits of the results of research should translate into better care. He did his MD training in Psychiatry from the prestigious National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore, India and is a former associate professor in a Department of Psychiatry, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University, Manipal. He is currently a consultant psychiatrist and independent researcher at Pune. He has been working in the field of psychiatry since 2005. mental health is essentially defined by 3 components – the way you think (thoughts), the way you feel (emotions) and the way you behave (behavior) and these need to be in perfect sync with your physical health for you to perform effectively and efficiently as an individual. A disturbance in any one of them can disturb the sync and seriously undermine your efficiency as an individual. If you want to be healthy it is equally important to care for your mental health as well, His consultation involves a professional, individualized and scientific approach to understanding the unique factors causing stress in each person. A comprehensive treatment program is discussed with the clients. While medication helps in quick control of symptoms placing the client on the path to recovery, psychotherapy involving cognitive-behavioral principles and understanding the mind-body relationship helps in correcting the incorrect thought process and equips the client to handle stress better, hence enhancing the chances of preventing future recurrences of stress-related disorders.
