Languages of publication
The State School of Hygiene (SSH) was opened in Warsaw in 1926, whose creation was possible thanks to financial support of the Rockefeller Foundation. Also owing to the Foundation’s help, in mid-thirties the Institute of Mental Hygiene (IMH) was launched. Both institutions were integrated within the structure of the National Institute of Hygiene. The purpose they were trying to successfully fulfill was to train a team of experts necessary for the national healthcare (SSH), diagnostic-medical and educational activity, as well as educational-propaganda and scientific-research work in the scope of mental health hygiene (IMH).
