'Wasserman M, 1985: The Aztec Community and Abnormal Behavior: A Look at its Program for Primary Prevention. Anthropologie (Brno) 23, 1: 75-78'.
 
Abstract
In this paper the author emphasizes the fact that the Aztec Society had developed social care, human relations and individual care, which as a consequence functioned as preventive factors for mental health and against abnormal human behavior. Examples of the prenatal care, of the social care for children, of the elementary psychological well-being in schools and of the social policy in adulthood and old age are presented. All these activites and methods helped to eliminate conditions which led to the emergence of mental disorder and encouraged influences that facilitated emotional well-being.
