A Cup of Coffee With a Psychologist
A CUP OF COFFEE WITH A PSYCHOLOGIST
In order to point out the importance of mental health and encourage the public to seek help from experts, Hemofarm Foundation has launched the project A Cup of Coffee with a Psychologist, with the aim to influence general public's awareness that mental health must be taken care of in the same way as physical health, and that mental health disorders are not a personal weakness, but rather a health problem for which there is an adequate solution if expert assistance is sought in time.

A Cup of Coffee with a Psychologist project has been conceived as a series of free-of-charge sessions with psychologists in which all interested parties can get an insight into particular psychological conditions and obtain advice on whom to address for getting support. The panel talks are an opportunity to talk about mental health openly with experts – psychologists and psychiatrists, as well as with the representatives of relevant institutions and public figures who have personally coped with some of the problems in their life.

A Cup of Coffee with a Psychologist project has been implemented with the support of the Psychology Institute within the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, and in partnership with Art Commune Dorćol Platz.

During the implementation of the project, the talks were organized dealing with depression, stress at work, career vs. family, how to cope with an illness, how to accept the fact that you cannot get pregnant, divorce, addiction, how to restrain children from using electronic gadgets.
