At any point in time, about 10% of the adult population will report having some type of mental or behavioural disorder (WHO, 2001). People with mental health problems may receive help from a variety of professionals, including general practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, specialist nurses and others. In Europe, a population‐based survey carried out in 2005‐06 indicated that, on average across EU countries, 13% of the population reported seeking help from a health professional for a psychological or emotional health problem over the past year (Eurobarometer, 2006). Among the people who sought help, two‐thirds (67%) had consulted a general practitioner, while 15% sought help from a psychiatrist and another 15% from a psychologist (Figure 3.7.3).
