First of all, according to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), health is considered a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not just the absence of disease or disability.
We therefore see that W.H.O. emphasizes on the part of wellness that is ensured not only by the absence of disease but also by a positive mental hygiene!
This is what is increasingly being discussed and emphasized, the quality of lifepart.
So again, according to W.H.O. "Mental Health is the state of emotional well-being where a person can live and work comfortably within the community and be satisfied with his personal characteristics and achievements."
As we can see, based on this definition, it is important on one hand to be content with his / her personal characteristics and achievements but also with his / her ability to function and to live (coexist) within the community.
Following this approach, we are lead to the bio-psycho-socialthinking, to the psychological problems approach.
In other words, we need to approach mental health problems by taking into account both the medical model that refers to the knowledge provided by the neurochemical research, psychopharmacology and genetics, as well as the psychological approach based mainly on the models that refer to Psychoanalytic, Cognitive, Behavioral and Systemic Therapy, as well as the Psychosocial View that takes into account the factors that cause stress and life’s psycho-pressure events.
Our effort therefore focuses on approaching and solving the problems that arise from this model.
Medical knowledge and experience, on one hand, and the psychotherapeutic approach based on both psychodynamic awareness and Cognitive - Behavioral Psychotherapy, are the means by which we work to achieve the best possible outcome in addressing any psychological - psychiatric issues arising.
