From the model of Integral Primary Care and under the principle of continuity of care, the development of channels of communication and integration between the first and second level of care in relation to mental health care is proposed. It presents the pioneering experience established in the Health Service of Lanzarote in which the figure of the clinical psychologist has been moved to the Health Centres to develop a joint community program from the Primary Care. The lines of action have focused on direct work with the patient, as well as with the staff, both individually and as a group. The objective is the sensitisation and standardisation of the treatment for mental disease in Health Centres. This work has been carried out with a positive assessment by patients and staff of the centres, which at the same time has demanded greater accessibility for a full implementation of the joint work model focused on the promotion, prevention, detection, and treatment for health mental.
