Fact sheet no. 42

The World Health Organisation describes mental disorder in the following terms: “a psychological or mental disorder is a considerable deviation from the norm in experience or behaviour that affects thoughts, emotions and actions–.

There are many people who suffer from mental disorders or are affected by mental health issues and it is often not easy for the individuals themselves, their relatives or their social sphere. Home care can become problematic and taking care of everyday chores is no longer possible without outside assistance.
