PENA GALBAN, Liuba et al. Community psychiatry in Cuba. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2014, vol.43, n.1, pp.91-104. ISSN 0138-6557.

An overview is presented of the development of community psychiatry in Cuba and its contributing factors. A proposal is made about how to build a new paradigm based on the community primary health care model, a more advanced organization model for mental health services that takes shape in mental health community centers, based on a theoretical and practical foundation that integrates all the aspects of a comprehensive approach to the health-disease process as a way to deal with such a complex system.

Keywords : community psychiatry; community care model; psychiatry; community health; organizational structure; paradigm.
