According to the World Health Organisation, good mental health is key to good mental and psychological well-being. Mental health can be defined as the cognitive, emotional and behavioural aspects that enable individuals to thrive within their family, social and professional settings, achieving an adequate level of well-being and quality of life.

Mental disorders are behavioural or psychological patterns associated with distress, disability or a significantly increased risk of death, pain, disability or loss of freedom. These include affective disorders (depression and bipolar disorder), anxiety, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, eating disorders, childhood and developmental disorders (autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and personality disorders.

Fundación Jiménez Díaz's Psychiatry Service counts on a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists specialising in clinical psychology, nurses specialising in mental health, art therapists and social workers.
