“The best medical practice is the one that approaches and treats the patient from an integral point of view. This means taking into consideration the patients´ social context, their family, their physical health and their spiritual condition. As a team, we aspire to include mental health as an essential component of people´s integral wellness. We need to stop separating body and mind as two different systems and eradicate all stigmas and judgments that have been holding up the correct treatment of mental health issues.”
“As a neuro-psychologist, I work conducting evaluations on patients with cerebral damage. This allows us to identify key aspects of human performance on learning and memorizing processes, problem solving, and other vital aspects.
