National Psychotherapy Day is dedicated to mental illness, which is often ignored. Many do not consider them a serious problem, but without proper attention, the situation can worsen – not only mental health, but also physical health can suffer. Fortunately, advances have been made in the field of mental health care, but not everyone is aware of them. Psychotherapy is highly effective in the treatment of mental illness.
For a long time, people used therapy as a help, but its format was very informal – conversations with close relatives, friends. Gradually, a direction was formed in medicine that deals with mental health and care for diseases. Today, there are different forms of therapy, the specialist selects the most successful one, which will help overcome mental problems.
- For the first time, the direction of psychotherapy was developed in the 9th century by the Persian physician Razes.
- Most clinical psychology programs are based on an empirical approach.
- National Psychotherapy Day was organized in 2012 by professionals and students with one goal – to raise people’s awareness of the work of psychotherapists, that they help people.
