Bollywood celebrities with Bipolar Disorder (बाइपोलर डिसआर्डर)

In 2017, 76 lakh people had bipolar disorder in India (The Lancet) but Indians are ignorant about mental health due to the stigma and prejudice against mental illness. Terms such as “Psycho”, ” Pagal” or “Mentally retarded” are used for  people suffering with mental health problems. People prefer to take treatment from physician or neurologist for mental health illness and avoid psychiatrist. Many a times they waste crucial time in taking advice from faith healer/ religious preacher or non psychiatrist.

  1. Dr. Rameez shaikh is extremely professional and expert psychiatrist for bipolar disorder in nagpur. He helped us to make free choice about medication. I have been taking medication and counseling from him since last 2 years and there is complete recovery. I want to thank him for guiding us through bipolar disorder. The reason why you should choose Dr. shaikh is because of his counseling skills for mood disorders. There was a time I took consultation from many doctors who just used to prescribe medication. There was improvement but my doubts was not sorted out and I felt like hopeless. Dr. Shaikh helped us through therapy and counseling for depression and mania as well. Thanks sir
