The systemic perspective places the mind on an evolutionary pathway from the material to the immaterial, with the acquisition of new forms of energy, linked to the relationships of complex organizations more than of particle agglomerates, capable of self-catalyzing also its own persistence. This apparent expenditure of energy actually translates into a considerable saving of it, because of the reduction of energy loss by dissipative phenomena. In this perspective, health becomes an emergent condition of biological systems, characterized by the persistent ability of harmonic resonance both inside and outside the system. The deterioration of this capability determines a process of progressive energy dissipation and of degeneration of the internal organization until the final dissolution of the whole. Different levels of organization of biological matter may be involved in this degenerative conditions that we call as mental illness. We can define which one was the level of primary disturbance, that triggered the whole process, by means of the analysis of the clinical symptoms profile. Therapeutic intervention must always keep in mind the principles of ‘catalysis’ and of the ‘sandwich intervention’ to restore the capacity for self-preservation of health. Where this is not possible, the risk of a chronic disorder and of a chronic dependence on external assistance becomes very high.
