Psychiatry

Psychiatry

At Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, our goal is to provide care for people who suffer from psychological problems and behavioral disorders. In addition, we help those who face difficulties in dealing with the various stresses of life. We assess and manage a wide spectrum of psychiatric and psychological conditions in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, with the aim of providing a comprehensive integrated multi-disciplinary service in partnership with mental health service providers in the community.

We provide specialist assessment and treatment for the following conditions:

Depression

Depression is a medical illness that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss. The condition affects how you feel, think and behave and can manifest as a range of emotional and physical problems.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder affects a person’s mood, behavior and activity levels. The affected individual may have increased energy and activity (in mania or hypomania) or a lowering of mood with decreased energy and activity.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is an apprehensive uneasiness of the mind in frightening or threatening situations. However, there are those who experience extreme anxiety even in the absence of a trigger. This becomes a cause for concern as it may affect one’s mood adversely, paralysing daily functions completely or for a prolonged period of time.

Forms of Anxiety Disorders:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Phobia

Adjustment & Stress Related Problems

When we encounter sudden or unexpected stress in life, it may become hard to cope with the situation. Our team offers counselling, as well as skills training to help you adapt to the curve balls life may throw your way.

Sleep Problems

Our team helps individuals who have non-medical problems to achieve a good night’s sleep. Treatment ranges from counselling to medication.

Psychosis

Psychosis is a condition whereby one loses contact with reality, and can no longer distinguish between fantasy and reality. Individuals suffering from psychosis typically hold false beliefs about occurring situations and may not be able to recognise familiar faces. They may also suffer from hallucinations.

Old Age Psychiatry

Our old-age psychiatrist and mental health team work with the elderly who experience psychological struggles, such as depression, psychosis, dementia and diminished mental capacity.

Psychological therapies

As different patients will require different form of psychological therapies, our specialists are able to provide CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), psychodynamic psychotherapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and mindfulness-based therapies.

Neuropsychiatric conditions

We provide diagnosis and treat behavioural and mental disorders caused by conditions which can affect the brain such as traumatic head injuries, epilepsy, Parkinson Disease, stroke, etc.

Psychosomatic disorders

Certain physical illnesses can be made worse by psychological factors such as stress or anxiety. Our specialists work closely with other physicians to treat conditions such as headaches, pain, dizziness, numbness, etc. 

Community Mental Health Programme

Our Community Mental Health Programme provides a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach in the management of adults and older persons with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and dementia.

Our team comprises psychiatrists, psychologists, case managers and medical social workers. The programme also works in collaboration with a network of general practitioners (GPs), polyclinics and community agencies in the community to provide appropriate, convenient, holistic and value-added care for our patients.
