A health expo campaign titled “Mental Health between Concepts and Myths” was organized by Students of the College of Medicine and Molecular Sciences.
The health expo campaign was held at the Avenues Mall attended by an overall estimate of 600 visitors to learn more about all the scientific concepts related to psychiatry.
More than 100 students from the College of Medicine and Molecular Sciences worked behind the integrated psychiatric awareness that sought to show the difference between mental health as science, misconceptions and popular myths.
This was done by providing the definition of the most common mental diseases such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, in addition to other phenomena such as hyperactivity and lack of attention, bullying.
Through these sections, the visitors were briefed on the symptoms of these mental diseases and methods of prevention or treatment in the event of an occurrence.
