What is Student Psychiatry?

Psychiatry, often regarded as the bridge between mind and medicine, plays a pivotal role in understanding and addressing mental health challenges. It is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental illnesses. Unlike other medical disciplines, student psychiatry focuses on the intricate interplay between biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to mental health.
