The main characteristic of our hospital is its psychotherapy-based approach. Each patient ready for psychotherapy gets therapy from psychiatrists or psychologists who are therapists with certificate everyday he spends here. In addition to individual and group therapies, psycho-pharmacotherapy, electroconvulsive therapy, detoxification therapy, behavior activation therapy and other behavioral therapy methods besides social skills training are provided for relevant patients. There are so many psychiatric and biblio-therapatic books published by the hospital’s own publishing house. These books are mostly used during therapy process.
