Luis Gutiérrez Rojas is a psychiatrist at the Hospital of Granada and tells us some of his anecdotes of his daily life.

The Psychiatrist

The figure of the psychiatrist in society varies depending on the cultural and social context. In some societies, psychiatrists are viewed as medical experts in the field of mental health and are highly valued for their ability to help people with mental and emotional problems.

In other societies, psychiatrists may be viewed with distrust or stigma, and may not be as highly valued as other mental health professionals.

In general, the role of the psychiatrist is often that of a medical specialist who works in collaboration with other mental health professionals, such as psychologists, social workers and nurses, to provide comprehensive, quality care for people with mental and emotional problems.

In some countries, access to mental health services is limited, and psychiatrists and other mental health professionals are scarce. This can hinder access to needed treatment and services for people with mental and emotional problems, and can contribute to perpetuating stigma and discrimination against people with mental problems.

In general, psychiatrists are fundamental in the treatment of mental and emotional disorders, and their role is key in improving the mental health and well-being of people around the world.

Functions of a psychiatrist

  1. Evaluate, diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and personality disorders.
  2. Prescribe medications to treat mental and emotional disorders.
  3. Perform therapy and provide counseling to patients and their families.

Sick Society

It is difficult to give an exact figure of how many people are medicated in the world, as it depends on the country and the specific population under consideration. However, it is estimated that in some countries, between 20% and 30% of the adult population is taking some type of medication to treat mental health or emotional problems.

In some countries, the use of medications to treat mental health problems has increased significantly in recent decades. For example, an increase in the use of antidepressants and anxiolytics has been observed in developed countries. However, an increase in the use of medicines has also been observed in developing countries, as access to health services and medicines improves.

It is important to note that the use of medications to treat mental health problems should always be considered as part of a comprehensive approach that includes therapy, social support and other interventions, and that these should be prescribed and supervised by a trained health professional.

We live on medication

According to a 2019 National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) study, nearly 20% of the U.S. adult population had taken some type of psychiatric medication in the past month. Antidepressant was the most commonly used psychiatric medication, followed by anxiolytics and mood stabilizers.

However, it is important to note that the use of medications to treat mental health problems should always be considered as part of a comprehensive approach that includes therapy, social support and other interventions, and that these should be prescribed and supervised by a trained health professional.
