On the precarious situation of attention to mental health in Catalonia

This work is a compilation of three articles published in the Journal of Health:

  • Care in mental health: more patients and fewer resources.
  • Children are an example of family and social insecurity.
  • Mental health professionals: invisible and overloaded.

These themes are developed more widely to the document prepared by the PSM (Platform for the defense of public attention in mental health in Catalonia), titled: The current situation in the field of Mental Health: Cuts and Model, which analyses the current situation of services for mental health and addictions, and its evolution over the years of budgetary restraint.

Keywords:
mental health; quality of care; social insecurity; overloaded professionals; children at risk
