MENTAL HEALTH

Our treatments with psychological therapy and the most advanced techniques in neuromodulation are highly effective, improving the quality of life of our patients and helping them recover their emotional well-being.

Mental health is a topic of great relevance worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental disorder at some point in their lives. An estimated 264 million people suffer from depression, while 284 million suffer from anxiety disorders.

According to the Ministry of Health, in Spain it is estimated that around 10-15% of the population presents some type of mental disorder at some point in their lives. Furthermore, it is estimated that half of mental disorders appear before the age of 14.

 

DEPRESSION

Depression is a mental condition characterized by a deep and persistent feeling of sadness, lack of energy, and loss of interest in activities that were previously pleasurable. Depression can affect all areas of a person's life, including their ability to work, study, and enjoy social relationships.

It is estimated that 5% of the population suffers from major depression and 10% from minor depression.

Symptoms of depression can vary, but some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Persistent feeling of sadness or emptiness

Depression can be caused by different factors, such as genetic factors, traumatic events, changes in the brain's chemical balance, and stressful situations.

 

At FIVAN we review pharmacological treatment and apply the most advanced techniques in neuromodulation, such asTranscranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). 

ANXIETY

Anxiety can affect people of all ages, although it is more common in women than men. Additionally, there are different types of anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, among others.

People with bipolar disorder experience episodes of deep depression and episodes of mania or hypomania, which can last weeks or months. During episodes of mania or hypomania, people may feel euphoric, have excessive energy, have rapid speech, and make impulsive decisions. In episodes of depression, people may feel sad, desperate, and hopeless.

In Spain, according to data from the Spanish Society of Psychiatry, it is estimated that around 2% of the population suffers from OCD at some point in their lives.

Obsessions are repetitive, intrusive thoughts or images that produce anxiety or discomfort, while compulsions are repetitive behaviors performed in response to obsessions with the goal of reducing anxiety or preventing a negative event.
