Psychology course holds meeting “Struggles in Mental Health”

The event took place at the Cabula Campus with the participation of teachers and undergraduate students.


Think about the role of psychology professionals beyond the space of the therapeutic office. This was one of the objectives of the meeting "Struggles in Mental Health", held by the Psychology course, on May 16th, at Campus Cabula, with professors Rafael Leite Fernandes and Iago Sampaio as coordinators, who were at the forefront of the opening speeches . Also participating in the meeting were the course coordinator, Prof. Dr. Sylvia Barreto, as well as Psychology teachers and students from Bahiana.

"Daily challenges: reflections on the field of mental health and new service technologies of the Psychosocial Care Network (RAPS)" was the theme of the round table which had as guests the coordinator of the Clinic on Rua de Brota, Analice Sena, clinical psychologist , specialist in Mental Health, and psychologist Glaucon Melo, who works with mental health at the Citizenship Point in the Historic Center of Salvador. The two speakers brought faces from their experiences as psychologists in an expanded clinic that works with homeless and vulnerable people.

According to prof. Iago Sampaio, the choice of the table's theme was due to the diverse nature of the clinic, which extends beyond the classic psychology set, made up of four walls and two chairs. "It is important for us to expand our listening, our attention, the demands that appear and to be able to articulate with all the devices on the network. It is necessary to think about expanded care for mental health, taking into account the context of that person and using the most various plastic surgery and clinical practices that we can, based on the ethics of the singular, of civility. This way we will have a better chance of promoting social transformation, through mental health", he pointed out. The meeting also featured interventions by psychologist and NAPP member Renata Berenstein, with the theme "The interface between art and mental health care" and by the group Insênios, which promoted a scenic conversation with the audience.
