Psychiatry is the area of medical knowledge which deals with the study, knowledge, explanation, prophylaxis, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of mental disorders on the basis of clinical observation and scientific investigation. Clinical experience continues to play a leading role in the practice of psychiatry.

The Psychiatry Service at Hospital Clínica Benidorm has its own professional who fundamentally works in the Polyclinic department but who also acts as a consultant if necessary in the hospitalization department.
