Mental illnesses, as we know, have become more of a social-medical problem. Somewhere and somehow these mental illnesses are a subject of moral discussion. In this paper we have discussed many facts of prevention, treatment, long term management and rehabilitation. There is still a lot of publicity and discussion internationally – especially in the Third World. Rapid changes have taken place in some regions of Europe. This region particularly is one of the most affected regions – the Balkans. Then comes the good reason to help this category the basic treatment models are discussed. Multi-factor approaches are mentioning the role of information media that has dealt with problems and solutions as explained. Information media has the number one role to keep the nations in efforts to help the needed awareness of the facilities available for those who need psychiatric services. Volunteers, be they doctors, or para-physicians, all participate in such humanitarian crisis. NGO’s can play a co-ordinating role in this hour of need.

Key words: Mental illnesses – Prevention – Long term management
