Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities of INTEC receives recognition
The Mental Health Collective, which brings together professionals in this area, awarded the distinction to Dr. Dalul Ordehi as part of the commemorative activities of World Mental Health Day
SANTO DOMINGO. The Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities of the INTEC, Dalul Ordehi Gonzalez, was recognized by Mental Health Collective for its constants contributions from the generation of evidence and the formation of new generations of mental health professionals in the Dominican Republic.
During the activity, which was held as part of the celebration of the World Mental Health Day, Ordehi González was awarded a plaque of recognition. In the same ceremony, the Dominican Society of Psychiatry awarded the distinction as Master of Dominican Psychiatry to Antonio Zaglul Elmúdesi, in posthumous tribute, and recognized Tirso Mejía Ricart, who died last year.
Wendy Alba, director and founder of the Mental Health Collective, highlighted that the poor investment in mental health and the deepening of inequality and social inequity are the main causes of the increase in violence, insecurity and suicides in Dominican society. He insisted that the 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) figures remain unchanged, which show that the country only invested the equivalent of 4.9 Dominican pesos in mental health per capita.
He stressed that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the mental health problem in the Dominican population, creating a more complex care scenario, incorporating new elements and posing new demands for care.
