The scientific coffees "Progressing with and for you: Scientific Coffees about Mental Illnesses" bring together patients, patients' families, researchers and doctors in a warm and close environment in which to share their knowledge and experiences about a certain mental illness.
The backbone of this second edition of the cycle is formed by mental illnesses, with anxiety and depression, addictions and memory disorders as the topics to be discussed in the sessions of January, February and March. The first coffee will be held on Thursday, January 26 at 6:00 pm in the PRBB and will be attended by Olga Valverde, head of the Research Group on Neurobiology of the Behavior of UPF, Marta Torrens, psychiatrist at the Hospital del Mar and Víctor Pérez, head of the Institute of Neuropsychiatry and Addictions of the Parc de Salut Mar.
The Department of Experimental and Health Sciences of UPF organizes for the second consecutive year this initiative, winner in 2015 of the competition for University Social Responsibility of the UPF and which counts with UPF's Board of Trustees, the Fundación Salud Mental Cataluña and the Federación Catalana de Drogodependencias as collaborating entities.
