Psychiatric

At SOF we have medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, study, and treatment of mental disorders. These include various abnormalities related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perceptions. Our services focused specifically on the mind, aiming to study, prevent, and treat mental disorders in humans which has been described as an intermediary between the world from a social context and the world from the perspective of those who are mentally ill.

We at SOF specialize in psychiatry often differ from most other mental health professionals and physicians . We are familiar with both the social and biological sciences which studies the operations of different organs and body systems as classified by the patient's subjective experiences and the objective physiology of the patient. We treat mental disorders, which are conventionally divided into two very general categories: mental illnesses and personality disorders.
