ABOUT DR SOWMYA KRISHNA
Mental disorders are an increasing cause of ill health and disability worldwide. According to the most recent WHO report, 1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental disorder at some point in their lifetime. Nearly two thirds of the people do not seek help from health professionals although treatments are available – due to stigma, discrimination and neglect (WHO report). We at Mind Over Body would like to bridge the gap in health services so that everyone is able to access comprehensive mental health care. Mind Over Body was created by Dr Sowmya Krishna to offer both clinical services as well as psycho education and training. It is for people with mental disorders, their careers/families and other healthcare professionals.

Dr. Sowmya is a wonderful doctor. She is an incredibly knowledgeable doctor and is so well versed in medications' uses, side effects, interactions, etc. She is always available if you need her and never rushes you during visits or if you call her after hours. She is fantastic and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Dr. Sowmya.
Excellent doctor. She spends time and listens and makes her decisions based on everyone's opinion. This doctor is not a pill pusher and is one of the few psychiatrists that will say when she thinks medicines are not needed. I would recommend (and do recommend her often) Dr. Sowmya to anyone looking for a doctor who actually cares and knows her profession."
