In therapy? In Argentina, it's the norm | Philosophy, Psychology, Art, Communication, Language | Scoop.it
Argentina has the most psychologists per capita in the world, and mental health treatment is commonplace.

Portenos -- that's what residents of Buenos Aires call themselves -- say they don't have the same stigma about seeking mental health treatment as Americans.
