"MENTAL HEALTH IN BUENOS AIRES" Argentina Local Custom Tip by swesn

Argentina Local Customs: 99 reviews and 82 photos

Apparently, it is really common in Buenos Aires to visit psychologists, psychiatrists or psychoanalysts. Nearly everyone, especially those from the middle and upper classes, visits them. They even send their children to such sessions. It is so common that there was absolutely no stigma with regards to this issue.

Some believe that it is popular in Buenos Aires because Argentinians see themselves as individuals and not as part of a group. They are quite concerned about their personal thoughts and feelings. Others feel that due to political instability through the past decades, no one feels secure about themselves and the future and hence, they need some help and guidance.
