Appointments and Specialities

Psychiatry is the medical specialty dedicated to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of mental, emotional and behaviour disorders. It is destined to all age groups. Psychiatric evaluation considers the patient’s global evaluation, in its biological, psychological and social perspective, aiming to increase life quality and emotional wellbeing.

At Joaquim Chaves Saúde medical units you will find psychiatrists specialized in different areas of this specialty and also a multidisciplinary team based in Casa de Saúde de Carnaxide (Carnaxide Mental Health Clinic), specifically oriented for mental health.
