MEF Program Summary

The specialty

Clinical Psychology is responsible for research, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of issues affecting mental health. It is a branch of psychology that deals with conditions that can cause discomfort or suffering to people.

Service Description

The Parc Taulí Mental Health Center (CSM-PT) is part of the Parc Taulí de Sabadell Health Corporation Consortium (CCSPT) with a considerable degree of decentralized management through an executive management. Its operation is in line with the guidelines of the Mental Health and Addictions Master Plan of the Department of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

We work in three priority lines of research: 1) Psychiatric epidemiology and risk factors (Mental Health Observatory of Catalonia); 2) Schizophrenia; 3) Gender differences in affective disorders. In recent years, priority has been given to innovation projects in which the adaptation of ICTs to the field of mental health is a central element.
