Psychiatry is the specialistic branch of medicine dealing with the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of mental disorders from a theoretic and practical point of view. Psychiatry may be defined as a “discipline of synthesis”, since pursuing and maintaining mental health, which is the main aim of psychiatry, is obtained by taking into consideration various fields: medical-pharmacological, neurological, psychological, sociological, juridical, and political.
In particular, compared to psychology, psychiatry is often more inclined to identify a mental or psychological disorder as deriving from an anomalous physiological functioning of the central nervous system.
