Since 1977, the SALUD MENTAL as the official organ of the  Institute of Psychiatry Ramón de la Fuente National Muñiz has sought to respond to the publishing needs of researchers working in the area of mental health, basing on four fundamental criteria: continuous education, updating, information and a multidisciplinary approach.
SALUD MENTAL has been published bimonthly uninterruptedly since its foundation in accordance with the good practices of scientific publication. The manuscripts are initially ruled by an internal review committee and, if approved, they are subsequently refereed in a double-blind process by experts on the different themes. SALUD MENTAL also publishes additional monographic supplements on various topics in the area of mental health.
Four decades after its foundation, SALUD MENTAL becomes a international scientific communication forum for national and international researchers in the areas of psychiatry, neurosciences and psychology.
