Prof. Dr. Fernando Lolas Stepke

 

“Education at all levels of society plays a key role in Mental Health. First, as a form of preventing and avoiding stigmatization of the mentally ill through clear understanding of causes and treatments of behavioral disorders. Second, as a way of teaching people all over the world how to prevent addiction and behaviors which may cause psychological suffering to themselves and to others. And, finally, as a means of creating awareness among policymakers and politicians about the importance of proper care and sound institutional background to prevent and fight mental disease”.
