Mental health is perceived as something hidden in the bushes of
everyday problems and/ or somatic difficulties. Whenever its deviations
start to hinder us, we need to seek out some kind of physician, usually our
GP, often a neurologist. The words ‘psychiatrist’, ‘psychiatry’ plunge us into
unrest, we imagine ‘yellow books’. It is just after visiting a psychiatrist that we
understand that such specialists do not bite and can even help (even with the
medicines they prescribe).

Sleeping disorders, mood issues, depressive states or anxiety attacks
can most often lead us right to the front door of a psychiatric practice.
The level of mental health isn’t a constant – we feel healthier in our better
periods – when we feel loved and appreciated, when things simply go our
The level of mental health isn’t the same in all of our spheres of functioning. A
person, whom we might determine as ‘relatively healthy’ psychologically, may
be extremely healthy in some respects, but may not function well in others.

In times of crisis it is even more difficult to maintain mental balance. However,
that does not mean that hardships should serve as an excuse for the loss
of control over one’s emotions or conduct. Advice from acquaintances and
friend may be of some help. Or maybe not…

Addictions have always been ‘the scourge of modern society’. Substances
forbidden by the law will always be ‘a reach of the hand away’ from their
users. Lately, the treatment of heroine addiction has often been associated
with methadone. This is actually replacement therapy – the risk of street drugs
and the actions following their acquisition is avoided.
