Liis Haavistu graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Tartu (2001) and completed a residency in psychiatry (2009). Her interest in psychiatry lies in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. She considers it extremely important to continuously take care of your mental health in order to help prevent mental disorders and facilitate recovery. Liis attends local and international psychiatry conferences every year to further improve her level of expertise. She has also completed introductory courses in family therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. Liis Haavistu is a member of the Estonian Psychiatric Association and the Estonian Junior Doctors' Association.

I have felt a calling to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. My interest in psychiatry started during my psychiatry practical course in my last semester of medical school, and I have not regretted my choice of specialty since. I always do my best to help my patients and expect them to be ready to cooperate. I think consistently caring for your mental health is important.
