For the 8th edition of Mini-Psych School at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, Sophie Grégoire, Ambassador, is inviting all Canadians to better understand how hormones and the brain influence many aspects of women's daily lives.
Whether in class or via live Web broadcast, Mini-Psych School students can explore how mood, perceptions, decision making and thoughts are the result of interactions between our brain activity and hormonal activity.
“A healthy mind is the cornerstone of a healthy and balanced life; it is the starting point for every action we take to live a fulfilled and rewarding life as well. It is inconceivable that, in 2013, people who live with a mental health disorder regularly come up against so much prejudice,” said Sophie Grégoire, Mini-Psych School Ambassador, inviting all Canadians to sign up for the 2013 season.
Mini-Psych School will give you direct access to the latest scientific information on mental health from clinicians and researchers who are internationally recognized in their fields. Women will talk about their lived experiences with mental health and what they did to get better.
Join the conversation!
Taking care of women's mental health means taking care of everyone. It means keeping our society balanced. What do you think?
Taking care of mental health means talking about it and taking care of yourself, every day. So how do you take care of yourself?
We can create a team and an extended family of people who are very different from each other to ensure our society is both balanced and healthy. Will you join the team?
