A CUP OF COFFEE WITH A PSYCHOLOGIST

A CUP OF COFFEE WITH A PSYCHOLOGIST
At Hemofarm Foundation, we believe that mental health is as important as physical health. Through the “A Cup of Coffee with a Psychologist” project, we want to raise public awareness that mental health problems are not a personal weakness, but a health problem for which there is a solution, if professional help is sought in time. Our objective is to encourage people to turn to experts, but also to inform them where they can ask for help. That's why we have organized 33 sessions on various problems of mental health and modern times and realized that the need for this kind of conversation is great. This is supported by the fact that the recording of the first session on the YouTube channel (“Depression, how it occurs and how to overcome it”) has over 600,000 organic views, and the last one (“Life with depression”) has over 100,000 organic views. The viewers showed us all how necessary it is to talk about mental disorders publicly.

With the support of the Institute of Psychology of the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, in partnership with the Dorćol Platz Art Commune, once a month we discuss the preservation of mental health with psychologists and psychiatrists, representatives of relevant institutions and public figures ready to speak publicly about the problems they themselves have faced. Discussions about emotional health, self-love and acceptance of positive and negative parts of one's personality, stress at work and burnout syndrome aroused great interest. At the sessions, we also talked about how to preserve mental health in a divided society, about the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic on mental health, about prejudices and stereotypes, the balance between career and family... After the mass murders in Vladislav Ribnikar Elementary School and the surroundings of Mladenovac, we organized a session “Serbia after tragedies - do we have empathy?” and provided additional professional help and support to the public via the SOS line 0800 001 002, which was established as part of the campaign to combat depression and stigma “Unbreakable”.

Serbia is a society with deeply rooted prejudices and stereotypes, mostly related to gender equality, ethnic background as well as prejudices against various minority groups. Inconsiderate labeling of people can often lead to long-lasting, and in some cases even fatal consequences, and it is very pronounced towards people suffering from mental illness. Why we have prejudices and stereotypes and how to overcome them we discussed with Dr. Tatjana Voskresenski, Director of the Special hospital for psychiatric diseases ‘Dr. Slavoljub Bakalovic’ in Vrsac, Milica Ninkovic, PhD student in the Department of Psychology and researcher in the Laboratory for research of individual differences, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade and Djurdja Stojiljkovic, psychologist and model.

Every society functions based on trust, while distrust in the world and the system is a great burden on the mental health of each individual. The global situation has deepened the already existing divisions and created the new ones that have induced the fear of disease and uncertainty in everyone. One thing is for sure – the changes have also brought a sense of unity. ‘We are all in the same boat, united in fear and the desire to find a solution’, was one of the messages of the panel session “How to preserve mental health in a divided society?’ at which we talked with Prof. Dr Dragan Popadic, Full Professor, Department of Psychology, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, Maša Vukčević Marković, psychologist, scientific associate at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade and Director of the organization PIN, doc.
