Psychoeducation increases the level of life satisfaction, and its purpose is to support internal development. Thanks to psychoeducation, we better understand ourselves and our problems, as well as develop the skills to deal with crises, diseases and disorders (e.g. depression). We also learn to recognize disturbing symptoms, observe our emotions and shape new strategies to regulate them.
Psychoeducation also makes us sensitive to others, teaches empathy and care for other people. In the course of psychoeducation, we learn the tools that enable us to carefully build a good relationship with ourselves and with others.
Psychoeducational activities are also invaluable support in the treatment of mental disorders. They reduce the risk of recurrence of the disease, increase resistance to stress, increase self-esteem and increase the sense of security. Specialists in psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychology recognize psychoeducation as a key support for the treatment process.
Psychoeducation also increases social awareness of mental health. Its important goal is to prevent stigmatization associated with specialist treatment of mental illnesses and disorders, such as depression.
