What is Mental Health?
Mental Health is declared as a priority in the heart of the European Union (Declaration of Helsinki, January 2005).
Mental Health covers a broad area of Medicine. It is estimated that between 20% and 25% of the general population suffers from some form of psychiatric disorder. This includes mild disorders, such as certain types of anxiety. It also includes more serious illnesses, such as some forms of schizophrenia or bipolar disorders. The causes and/or triggers of mental illnesses can be very different, making it necessary to analyse each case individually in order to determine which treatment or combination of treatments are required.
One form of Mental Health care is based on the community model, geared towards the needs of people, with a more preventative and proactive approach, and organised on the basis of an integrated and comprehensive system that guarantees continuity of patient care.
The treatment of mental illnesses is, in most cases, a delicate matter in which patients and their family members should feel comfortable and trust in the professionals giving them care. We believe that the best way to deal with these problems is through medical knowledge and the latest therapies, always accompanied by individual care, treating each person with their best interest in mind.
