"What Affects our Psyche?? Is psychiatry all about treating psychiatric disorders using drugs? Are psychiatrists giving adequate time for the counselling of patients? How does our society take patients with psychiatric disorders? Does our traditional practice need to change? Are not there any other ways to promote the psychological state of people?" Our Environment, our culture, our religion, our genes, our society that we interact with directly or indirectly affects our psyche. Psychiatry is also about preventing the mental disorders. It is high time now that we change our society. Better create an environment of love, friendship and happiness that would set free our 'Psyche' (Butterfly: ancient Greek Origin) as soon as possible because our time is limited.
