Psychiatry in Slovenia: A high suicide and cirrhosis rates country

  • Andrej Marušic (a1) and Marija Brecelj (a2)
Extract

Although considerable changes have taken place in Slovenia since it became independent in 1991, the psychiatric services face further challenges for their future. Among these, the two main priorities are a further development of the already proposed Patients Advocacy Act and Protection of Rights of Mental Patients Law, and a development of presently almost non-existent community psychiatric services (World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe, 1999). The developing services should become needs-oriented as Slovenia is a country with extremely high suicide rate and has high rates of alcohol misuse and alcohol-related disorders, with both problems interacting significantly throughout the country.
