Psychiatric disorders are common and are easily treatable. Some of the psychiatric problems happen because of chemical imbalances in the brain and just as Diabetes or Hypertension can be seen as an illness process. Unfortunately most psychiatric disorders cannot be diagnosed with a simple blood test. It requires a thorough Psychiatric & Psychological evaluation to understand the underlying reasons for the cause of the problem/condition.
