Welcome to the Department of Health Study!
Department of health study was established in 2007 at the initiative of the Assoc. prof. dr.Andrew Marušič. It is a response to the lack of research and projects in the field (mental) health and as a counterweight to the stigma of mental disorders.
Department of health study is a dynamic and creative environment where you can d
evelop research ideas in the areas of mental health, public health, medical informatics and related fields. The Department is included in numerous local and national health projects, European and international projects in the field of suicide prevention and mental health promotion, and national and international organizations. In science, research, clinical and educational work of the department, the employees also follow their intuition, imagination and innovation.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.
The symbol in the logo of our department is an old pagan symbol for the health and treatment. Its original meaning was connected with the World Health Organization definition of health. Each of the three interlocking circles that form a line winding around the central rod is one of the areas of welfare. The lower, the smallest circle represents a physical welfare, the middle the mental welfare and the bigger the maximum social welfare, but all of them are essential to achieve the feeling of health.
