Program Description

I asked permission before I photographed this young lady just sitting quietly and captivated by the ever-changing vista in front of her. The light was magnificent on this early October day, and it seeming never stopped revealing and hiding the incredible mountains in the distance.

Why postgraduate training in Mental Health in adults? The current concept of health, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), is centered not only on the absence of physical health, but on a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, so often compromised in adulthood.

To speak of mental health is, therefore, to give meaning to common expressions such as "there is no health without mental health", or "healthy mind in healthy body". In other words, it encompasses numerous personal / socio-emotional skills such as adapting to changes / changes in life, solving losses / crises, critical sense of oneself and reality, establishing satisfactory emotional bonds with others, creativity, existence of projects and a meaning for life.

Several individual and contextual reasons can contribute to the decrease in the quality of mental health. However, it can be promoted, since it is not static and changes over time.
