DE SANTACRUZ, Cecilia et al. The Construction of a Mental Health Component for the National Survey: NMHS 2015, Colombia. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2016, vol.45, suppl.1, pp.19-25. ISSN 0034-7450.

Abstract Introduction: Usually, mental health has been defined as the absence of mental disorders. In order to approach this concept in a plain sanitas way, it was considered necessary to crosslink a component for the National Mental Health Survey 2015 (NMHS; ENSM for its acronym in Spanish), that would respond to the specific orientation and particularities of the country. Objective: To describe the structure and contents of the mental health component of the NMHS 2015 for the Colombian population over 7 years of age. Methods: Review, documentary analysis and discussion regarding the concepts and tools with the team in charge of the NMHS and other groups. Results: 353 documents were reviewed, and 180 were analyzed and discussed. The component model is presented, considering the ethic dimension of relationship care as a main element; it merges two inquiry dimensions or categories: subjective-relational, and social-collective. Conclusions: The structured mental health component provides information regarding the entire population. It also allows understanding and approaching the concept of mental health as a personal and collective "good life".
