The online dictionary Terminologia de l’atenció a la salut mental i a les addiccions (‘Terminology of mental health and addictions care’) gathers 264 terms about the way of approaching the care of people who have mental health problems. These terms are related to the promotion of mental health and the prevention of mental disorders; the treatment of mental disorders and the rehabilitation and recovery processes; the reintegration of people with mental disorders or addictions and their environment; the model of care; the organization of mental health services; and the ethical and legal aspects of mental health care. Some general concepts and terms related to epidemiology are also part of this dictionary.
Each terminological entry contains the preferred denomination in Catalan and the corresponding synonyms, if any; equivalents in Spanish, French and English; a definition in Catalan, and explanatory notes in most of the cases.
This work has been carried out by TERMCAT in co-authorship with the Catalan Ministry of Health, with the aim of reflecting the current model of care of people with mental health issues: an integral, integrated and person-centred care; from a community approach; in favour of deinstitutionalization; with focus on the promotion of capacity, self-determination and individual autonomy of people and the formation of supportive social networks.
Clicking on "Consulta de termes" (‘Term search’), terms can be looked up in two ways: using the alphabetical indexes (there is a different index for each language) or making simple or advanced searches in the upper space "Text de la consulta" (‘Text search’) in any of the dictionary languages.
