Topic of discussion:  Mental Health.

Dr. Khu explained mental health as a term describes the well being of a human. There are more than 300 terms describing mental health status. "It would take several days to explain all the definitions." Dr. Khu replied. If you have mental sickness, a good diagnose by the doctor is an important step toward treatment of your condition, either by therapy sessions or medications or both. The #1 treatment of a family member to recover from mental sickness is to acknowledge that person's sickness and to care for that person. 

Dr. Nao Shoua explained that each medicine does possess some side effects depending on the amount of the medicines and the tolerance of individual who consume the medicine. Certain medicines, the doctor or prescriber wants to start with the small dose and then either gradually increase or decrease of the medicine.
