We compared the prescription of psychotropic drugs and psychotherapy manifiested in professionals belonging to primary care medicine in Spain on the one hand, and Mexico and Colombia on the other. A descriptive-analytical and crosssectional research was conducted using as a technique to collect information, the questionnarie. The sample was contacted by dissemination of the questionnaire link. Acceptance sample was compound by 60 individuals, 50% from Spain and the rest from Mexico and Colombia. The mean age was 45,66 years (SD=10,75). The 51,7% were male. Total average frequency for prescription of psychotropic drugs in the past year was 6 (SD=2,2) on a 9 point Likert Scale (O=none, 9=very often). When different countries were considered, the results were as follows, Spain: 6,77 (SD=2,31), Mexico and Colombia jointly: 5,23 (SD=2,28). The difference between both means was significant, t(58)=-2,85, p=0,006. Total average frequency for prescription of psychotherapy was 5,1 (SD=2,91) on a 9 point Likert Scale (o=none, 9= very often). By countries, results were the following, Spain: 4,21 (SD=2,72), Mexico together with Colombia: 5,93 (SD=2,88). The difference between both means was significant t(58)=2,32, p=0,02. The reported prescription of psychotropic drugs and psychotherapy may be influenced by cultural factors depending on the Spanish context by one hand, and Mexico and Colombia, by other hand.
