On November 22nd, Psychiatrist's Day is commemorated in Argentina in honor of Domingo Felipe Cabred (1859-1929), Argentine physician, psychiatrist and sanitarist who founded in the Buenos Aires town of Open Door the first establishment for the treatment of alienated people with open doors, from which the town derives its name. This type of colony was the first of its kind in Latin America.
It should be noted that psychiatry is a science that deals with the origin, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses, related to disorders of perception, mood, thought, emotion and their effects on interpersonal relationships, work and behavior of the affected individuals.
Although years ago mental illnesses were discussed and were not recognized, society evolved in this respect and nowadays psychiatry has broadened its relations with all the basic sciences, since the normality or mental pathology of an individual cannot be understood without taking into consideration all the possibilities offered by the human sciences.
