Recovery with Peacefulness through a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy

The Psychiatry Department of CBMC provides a tailored Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy(MBCT) to a group of patients diagnosed with mental disorder including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and depression. We offer an opportunity to the patients who lack self-esteem and tend to have a negative feeling to accept themselves to have a new relationship different from the past by supporting them with the group therapy Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is not only effective against anxiety disorder or depression but also various emotional illnesses. It also has benefits of developing human potential and improving self-healing ability.

A Front-runner in Mental Illness and Female Depression Treatment

Psychiatry is the medical specialty to diagnose and treat patients with mental disorder. It not only helps people suffering from mental illness but also supports people to improve their mental health, feeling happier and more comfortable. The staff gives counseling to people of all ages under stress or with mental illness or psychological problems.

The lifetime prevalence of a major depressive disorder in women is almost twice that in men. Women are more likely to have mental disorders including premenstrual dysphoric disorder, anxiety disorder, eating disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. In fact, more women seek help in mental health and receive more psychiatric support than men. The Department has its own treatment system for women's mental health in consideration of the unique symptoms, utilizing a therapeutic approach developed based on our 10 years of know-how and experience in treating female depression.

“Daytime Hospital” Specialized in Recurrence Prevention

A “daytime hospital” system is operated to help patients having difficulty in adjusting to society or experiencing psychological difficulties after discharging from the hospital or developing mental illness. Our team of psychiatrists stays with patients during the entire treatment time and provides a total patient care including a therapeutic program, medication administration and side effect management, and counselling to the patients. The Department also applies its unique program designed to prevent recurrence to intensively control symptoms and effectively reduce the chances of recurrence even if patients are not admitted to the hospital.
