Contact with us
DomusVi offers mental health care to persons with mental illnesses from an integrative and multi-disciplinary approach.
Our professionals work on the basis of five principles: inclusion, individualisation, professionalisation, participation and stabilisation.
These principles are aimed at improving and promoting the autonomy of the person and facilitating their social inclusion. To achieve this, we work from three dimensions:
1. Active participation of all persons involved: patients, family members and professionals. Community integration.
2. Professional intervention which places the mental health patient in the leading role of their life project.
3. Global intervention, based on the holistic concept of the person, from a “biopsychosocial” perspective. We aim to look at all the needs of the person as a whole, not just focusing on their pathology.
The ultimate objective is to provide a quality person-centred service, strengthening their individual resources and enhancing their connection with the environment to the largest extent possible. For persons with mental illnesses, well-being entails controlling the symptoms and structuring their living habits in such a way that enables them to sustain a stable living situation.
