Excerpt
Interventions for the management of mental and behavioural disorders can be classified into three major categories: prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. For most disorders, the best treatment is one that combines psychosocial interventions with appropriate application of medicines. This section is based on treatment recommendations presented in the World Health Report 2001 (WHO, 2001a). While it focuses on effectiveness of medicines, it is not intended to imply that this should be the sole treatment for mental disorders. > Prevention (primary prevention or specific protection) comprises measures applicable to a particular disease or group of diseases in order to intercept their causes before they affect the individual; in other words, to avoid the occurrence of the condition. > Treatment (secondary prevention) refers to measures to arrest a disease process already initiated, in order to prevent further complications and sequelae, limit disability and prevent death. > Rehabilitation (tertiary prevention) involves measures aimed at disabled individuals, for restoring them to their previous situation or maximizing the use of their remaining capacities. It comprises both interventions at the level of the individual and modifications to the environment.
