Mental Health Resources in Brazil

Dec 19, 2006

I work in mental health and after reading the piece on HIV/AIDS resources in Brazil I was curious what they have in the ways of community mental health. Particularly for people with serious mental illness.

Response from Dr. Horwath

I know that Brazil has a number of excellent psychiatric clinics, especially in the larger cities that I have visited. For example, the federal hospitals in Porte Allegre, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo have very good psychiatric treatment centers.
