In the historic center of Pinerolo, meetings to take care of mental health – Turin Today

A series of mental health meetings in the historic center of Pinerolo to deal with the effects of the pandemic with experts. This was proposed by the associations Direfare Ecosolidale, Pensieri in piazza and the General Society of Mutual Aid Workers, with the collaboration of Ama (Self-Assistance), within the framework of the “Synergies – Associations and citizens in network” project. The project received a grant from the Piedmont Region to create a space dedicated to associations via Silvio Pellico 23.

“’Sinergie’ is also a series of activities and services dedicated to the population. The topics mainly concern mental health and emotional difficulties, themes that have become very relevant in recent years – explains Emilio Gardiol for Pensieri in piazza -. Witness the many requests for help that have arrived at the ASL To3 and at the social clinic of the Mutualité Générale des Travailleurs which is nearby, at number 17”.

The meetings begin Thursday, April 7, at 9 p.m., with a debate moderated by the psychologist psychotherapist Antonella Audero entitled: “The impact of the pandemic on the mental health of the population”. We continue Thursday April 21at 9 p.m., with a round table in the presence of Mental Health, Psychology Service, Social Service of ASL To3, Ciss (Intercommunal Consortium of Social Services) and Ama, in which we discuss how services and associations can promote resilience in the face of Covid 19. Finally, Thursday May 5, always at 9 p.m., the problems of the family context during the Covid 19 emergency are confronted with the conflicts of the couple and the emotional difficulties of the children. The meeting is organized in the form of a round table with the child psychiatrist from ASL To3, from the Ciss family center, a nutritionist, the leader of the Ama group “Parents of adolescents”, a psychologist from the social clinic, Femme reversal and Libre of violence.
