Let's Talk About Mental Health!

How can I take care of myself or others?


On the occasion of our "Mental Health" year (2022/2023) we are collaborating with the Geneva Centre for Humanitarian Studies (Dr. Valérie Gorin) and the Interfaculty Centre for Affective Sciences at the University of Geneva (Dr. Marzia Varutti). Throughout the year, a series of 5 thematic conversations will bring together specialized discussants from different fields of expertise in the informal and inspiring settings of our exhibitions. Together, we will explore questions such as: What are the new therapeutic perspectives in emergency contexts ? How to represent mental health ? How can I take care of myself or others?

Our approach seeks to offer critical tools and practical resources to a broad audience in order to destigmatize mental health issues.

5th discussion: How can I take care of myself or others?

Mental health doesn’t always involve specific and specialised psychotherapy and treatment. There are some very easy tools and practices that can be implemented by every individual to help manage stress and stressful situations. These tools can be used for self-help, individually and with groups.
The aim of this masterclass is to explore different everyday practices and psychological First Aid toolkits easily adaptable for individuals working in humanitarian contexts, or any stressful environment.

 

The discussion will be held in English only. Registration link soon online.
