"Psychology is not for crazy people"!
On December, we are launching a campaign to promote awareness about the importance of mental health, increase mental health literacy and reduce the stigma and prejudice associated (still and unfortunately) with Psychology and Psychiatry.
Follow us on our social networks to learn more about what we are preparing for you.
November seemed the right time to get to work!
Every day we tried to respond to your needs, as best as we can. Therefore, we are building a new space, with better conditions and new services, for you.
Stay tuned and join us during this change!
The Mental Health Clinic Isabel Henriques has recently established a collaboration protocol with Mais Saúde Coimbra - Rui Couto (MSC), a space where physical exercise is practiced and health and well-being is promoted from childhood to the elderly.
The goal of this collaboration is to promote health literacy and promote better access to mental health services.
Thus, individuals referred by the MSC space may enjoy a 15% discount on the psychology services provided at the Mental Health Clinic.
Take care of your body and your mind, take care of yourself!
Know Your Shit!
O Know Your Shit é um projeto de workshops em Coimbra direcionados a jovens universitários que funciona como um local de encontro para eles enquanto jovens estudantes e enquanto adultos em formação que se debatem com dúvidas e angústias semelhantes.
A ideia do Know Your Shit nasceu a partir da perceção deste problema e da dificuldade que sabemos que existe dos jovens acederem a serviços de saúde mental. A ideia da humanidade comum ajuda-nos a entender que nunca estamos sozinhos no sofrimento e que há sempre alguém que entende perfeitamente o que sentimos, por já ter sentido algo semelhante.
Seja a partir de workshops dinâmicos isolados de duas a três horas ou com eventos de uma tarde inteira que incluam convidados pertinentes, os formatos permitem abordar temas como ansiedade e burnout, adaptação a um novo país ou cidade, sexualidade, isolamento, emoções difíceis, mindfulness, psicologia positiva vs positividade tóxica, impacto das redes sociais, amor e amizade... num local familiar e acessível aos estudantes, esta pretende ser uma pequena parte daquilo que pode ser uma grande solução para os problemas de saúde mental dos jovens.
Have you paid attention to your body today? What about your breathing?
Soon, Mental Health Clinic Isabel Henriques will offer open Mindfulness practice sessions*, in Portuguese and in English.
Without commitment, you can enjoy this group time to learn how to breathe, learn how to listen to your body's signals and the basic teachings of Mindfulness practice.
The sessions will be held every Wednesday at 7pm, with a duration of one hour, and will be mediated by psychologist Andreia Martins.
Price per session: 20 euros
(the payment should be done one day before the session)
Stay tuned! We will disclose more information soon!
