The Well Mind Clinic at Evangelismos Hospital
Were you aware that:
1 in 4 adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year, and 1 in 6 experiences this at any given time. (The Office for National Statistics Psychiatric Morbidity report, 2014)
It is estimated that approximately 450 million people worldwide have a mental health problem. (World Health Organisation, 2014)
Women are more likely to have been treated for a mental health problem than men (29% compared to 17%).This could be because, when asked, women are more likely to report symptoms of common mental health problems. (Better Or Worse: A Longitudinal Study Of The Mental Health Of Adults In Great Britain, National Statistics, 2014)
Depression is more common in women than men. 1 in 4 women will require treatment for depression at some time, compared to 1 in 10 men. The reasons for this are unclear, but are thought to be due to both social and biological factors. It has also been suggested that depression in men may have been under diagnosed because they present to their GP with different symptoms. (National Institute For Clinical Excellence, 2013)
Now, in its tenth year as a fully licensed private hospital in Paphos, Evangelismos Hospital is expanding its already renowned medical facilities to provide unique psychological treatment services at a new Well Mind Clinic.
This dedicated clinic situated in a quiet and calm area of the hospital will, initially, have professional outpatient facilities for those suffering from psychological difficulties such as Anorexia Nervosa, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Substance Abuse, Schizophrenia, Dementia and other psychological disorders.
The fully qualified team led by a psychiatrist includes a UK trained clinical psychologist specialising in adults and especially the elderly, UK trained psychodynamic psychotherapist for all ages and a UK trained Counselling Psychologist with a speciality in play therapy for children.
Four of the Team speak both English and Greek.
