TORTELLA-FELIU, Miquel et al. Challenges in the development of psychological interventions and care practice in mental health. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.2, pp.65-71. ISSN 2174-0550.

Although we have made significant progress in the development of preventive tools and especially in the efficacy of the psychological treatments, we are still far from an optimal situation. This paper focuses on two major issues which we consider fundamental challenges and urges in this area: (a) the need for improving and spreading prevention, early intervention, and the promotion of mental health and (b) the need for greater dissemination of effective psychological treatments, the development of new interventions and greater understanding of the mechanisms of action of psychological treatments. The aim is to promote discussion among all stakeholders and debate on those lines we think as priority.

Keywords : Mental health; Psychological treatments; Prevention; Research.
