The Government Clinic of the Southwest Region – Quirinópolis held a conversation with the staff of the Goiás Government Unit of the Southwest Region on the topic of mental health and cleared the doubts about the Multidisciplinary Team for Specialized Care in Mental Health (Emaesm).
Dr. Debora Mônica Paixão has promoted a welcoming and interactive space with a lot of information about mental health. He explains that most people, when they hear about mental health, think of mental illness, but that mental health means more than just the absence of mental illness.
“Mentally healthy people are known to understand that no one is perfect, that everyone has limits and that you cannot be all things to everyone. They experience a range of emotions on a daily basis, such as joy, love, contentment, sadness, anger and frustration,” he said.
According to Débora, mentally healthy people are able to face the challenges and changes of everyday life with balance and know how to ask for help when they are having difficulty dealing with conflicts, upheavals, traumas, or important transitions in different life cycles. He said, “Therefore, a person’s mental health is related to how he interacts with the requirements of life and how he reconciles his desires, abilities, aspirations, thoughts and emotions.”
Emaesm is a mental health care line device, aiming to provide comprehensive care to people with moderate mental disorders, who will receive expert care by a multidisciplinary team, and integrate it with other services of the healthcare network.
