We would like to invite you to participate in the Brain Storms initiative, which consists of a cycle of online conversations, once a month, with mental health professionals and members of Técnico community. Each session will have a specific theme and an invited expert to present, discuss and expose solutions related to the issue in question. Throughout the conversation, there will be a place for participants to interact, asking questions through the chat in the virtual room.
The next session is titled “LGBTQ? And there is +? Identity and Mental Health” and will be held in partnership with Queer IST. The psychologist and psychotherapist Delso Batista will be the invited speaker. In this session, the speaker will address issues such as gender, sexuality and the way we identify ourselves and how society identifies us can affect our mental health.
The session will take place on 9th June 2021, at 18:00. Registration.
This initiative is promoted by the Técnico Student Club on Mental Health and Inclusion, in collaboration with the Academic Development Unit (NDA). We are developing activities that focus on these important issues, creating a space for mutual help and communion within the IST community.
