psychiatrists are facing in their practice in relation to accelerating
changes in human existence is discussed. The classifications of
mental illnesses are replenished with new nosological units and
treatment recommendations, because of a changing world. The
definition of health as the absence of disease becomes untenable
due to its inability to shed light on the nature of the pathologies.

most perspective nowadays. Various authors recognize spirituality
as one of the integral components of human well-being. Researchers
attribute to spirituality the function, which has moderating effects
(reduced or leveled) of stressors and adverse life circumstances on
human well-being. The work poses the problem of spiritual health
as the possibility of mastering spiritual experience and its integration
into a personality worldview. Substantiated that spirituality is
recognized as a special field of quality of life research, and spiritual
health and psychological well-being have heuristic potential in the
context of psychiatry.
