mental health, bio-psycho-social approach, health education, educational needs, review.


Healthcare and fight against disease are some of the oldest human
concerns. Health is not only an individual problem, it also concerns
the society as a whole, as German philosopher Schopenhauer said,
'health is not everything, but without health there is nothing'
(Schopenhauer, 1788-1860). Research objective: In this study, there
was made a systematic review about the bio-psycho-social approach
of mental health and educational needs in this context.Research
hypotheses: Mental health status has an important role, as a part of
human health in the bio-psycho-social approach of health in world. In
Romania, there is an important public health problem, which requires
appropriate health education of the population, and integrated mental
health services, in the health system, for a better prevention.Research
methodology: Several scientific articles have been reviewed, in order
to make a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the mental health
approach, in the light of bio-psycho-social issues of human health,
and the educational needs of population in this field.Research results:
show the need for mental health education of the Romanian
population, in the current trends of mental morbidity evolution. The
governmental politics for health follow prevention aspects, from the
mental health perspective of population. The main prevention method
remains health education of population.
