Department of Neuropsychiatry
Contents of medical treatment
Our fundamental medical care policy is to understand a patient’s distress and anguish and to resolve the problem together with the patient. In our department, we practice a wide range of medical care, from primary care to highly specialized medical services. Medical conditions that are our focus are general mental disorders including schizophrenia and mood disorders (depression and manic depressive illness). Furthermore, we are positively involved in mental health activities as primary prevention.
Characteristics of diagnosis and treatment
In our department, we always aim to perform a physical approach together with a psychological approach. We actively perform head MRI and CT, electroencephalography and other clinical examinations and use the obtained results for diagnosis and treatment.
We have 40 beds in our mental ward and 1 bed in our general ward as an inpatient facility. We mainly admit a patient with mild depression, neurosis, or insomnia in the general ward, let him/her rest under a low stress condition and perform sufficient pharmacotherapy. On the other hand, our department positively admits mental patients with a physical complication to the hospital for the purpose of examination and treatment.
