Psychiatry and Psychology

According to the World's Health Organization, Mental Health is one of the main scopes of Health and Well-being, being that the most recent epidemiological studies mention that at the genesis of functional, educational and labour-related disabilities are mental health problems.

That being so, we had to include at Hospital da Luz Coimbra a Psychiatry and Psychology Unit that provides an encompassing response to School Difficulties, Psychological Disturbances, Nervous and Mental Diseases.

Assessment and Intervention

Psychiatry and Psychology at Hospital da Luz Coimbra is a Unit prepared to provide an encompassing response to Psychological Disturbances, Nervous and Mental Illnesses and School Difficulties, in terms of Assessment and Intervention.
