In the Psychiatry Unit of Türkiye Hospital, all efforts are made to identify causes and generate solutions for those with psychological problems. Psychiatric treatments involve adolescents and adult patients.

Characteristics of Treatment
In this context, it is utmost important to identify the factors effecting individuals' behaviors and making them feel unhappy. Psychological stressors have common characteristics, although they have different causes. In almost all of them, findings are evident, which originate from insufficiency.
Psychiatric treatment forms a basis for suffering patient to express the repressed feelings and to trust for sharing them. Therapeutic success goes in parallel with the level of patient’s trust.
Based on these characteristics, psychiatric treatments may be continuous and long-term. Incomplete treatments may result with relapses in the short term, since negative behaviors and thoughts could be only partially eliminated.
What does the treatment provide?
Success rate of the psychiatric treatment is not only based on the patient correctly expressing herself/himself, but it also needs a doctor, who is unbiased and is a patient listener. Mostly, the patient can comfortably express any and all thoughts depending on the confidence that doctor inspires. This makes it easy to find the cause of the disease.
A patient with mental & emotional disorder is characterized with introversion, unwilling to share and even efforts to hide even from himself. Success of the treatment is ensured by taking the patient out of this shell.
In one way, gradually isolating from the social life, the patient is gaining life dynamics again. With the confidence inspired by treatment, the patient starts to enjoy life, face with difficulties, and resists the obstacles.

Insomnia is among the main causes that adversely affect the quality of life. In general, sleep disorders are related with psychological problems rather than to physical conditions. The individual experiences a dilemma between sleep disorder and mental disorder. As insomnia caused by physical diseases may adversely affect person’s mental health, the opposite may be also true, i.e., some mental problems may cause insomnia.
