The world we live in changes more rapidly than we are willing to change
and because of that our entering the “net of all nets” may be interpreted
in two ways. On the one hand, one group of regionally connected psychiatrists
introduce themselves on Internet pages for the first time in Croatia.
On the other hand, considering the advantages of Internet, we are late.
First we came up with the idea of organizing annual meetings of psychiatrists
of Slavonia and Baranja, and it was accepted with enthusiasm. We had our
first meeting on May 11, 2004, in Osijek. Besides meeting other colleagues,
our objectives were to determine working, research and education possibilities
of each center and to create a register of psychiatrists in Slavonia and
Baranja. At that time we pondered the idea of creating a web site. On
our second meeting, on May 27, 2005 in Brodski Stupnik, the pages were
presented and accepted with enthusiasm.
The creators of the site wanted to make it identifiable and therefore
the pages have been decorated with some of our local peculiarities (Slavonian
poems and songs, Slavonian recipes, and the like).
Our primary goal is to unite the scattered potentials in psychiatry of
Slavonia and Baranja into one virtual area of desire, knowledge and skills
that will be used for well-being of those who need our help.
The columns offered will reflect our public-health, therapeutic, scientific-research,
educational and publicistic work. The pages will be maintained by all
psychiatrists from Slavonia and Baranja, each according to his/her sphere
of professional and scientific-research interest.
Your questions, protected by discretion, will be answered by competent
professionals at an adequate page.
We are open to neighbors and welcome everyone who wishes to join us in
realization of this idea. Regional and national borders are not obstacles
for our cooperation. We already cooperate with centers in Croatia outside
Slavonia, but also with centers outside Croatia. We are looking forward
to cooperation with our colleagues from Hungary.
The text will be presented in Croatian, English, Italian, and Hungarian
language. On our pages you will find all news significant for psychiatry
in Slavonia and Baranja, and in photo gallery there will be photo documentation
of our activities. You also have an access through our links to all addresses
related to our scope of activity.
We accept your advices and your help, because we've created this virtual
child and we would like this child to survive.
