Hello everyone here. Good to know about this forum. I am from Mumbai, India and my mother is suffering from schizophrenia. I want to take her to best psychiatry specialist present in mumbai and provide best treatment. If anyone has idea about good specialist please reply me.
Sorry I do not know anybody in Mumbai, but this brought up one memory in my mind, when I lived in my auto in America and some people had noticed I had mental issues as I knew already, these assholes wrote on the net that they knew a good psychiatrist for me, hourly rate was 100 US dollars, I ignored, in my society if I want to see either psychologists or psychiatrists it does not cost anything, I do not know how it is in Mumbai, but in some countries these good specialists may cost a lot of money.
