Salamati Supplement on Mental Health, Issue 36, Fourth Quarter 2007
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is not merely absence of disease or infirmity. It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being. Unfortunately, mental health is not considered as important as physical health. Many health workers consider mental illness as difficult problem that should be referred to the specialists in the specialized centers. On the other hand, the number of psychiatrists and mental disease specialized treatment centers are very limited in Afghanistan. As a result, many patients with mental illnesses are left without treatment. In fact most of the mental illness can be treated effectively in the primary level health centers. It is very important that every health worker knows the management of common mental illness.
Unlike Salamati magazine which includes general information for health workers and general population, this supplement includes more technical information. The intended readers of the supplement are mainly health professionals in the health facilities and the supplements are distributed only to health facilities. We hope that this information will be useful to you and help you in your daily practices.
Enjoy your reading,
Dr Najibullah Hamid
