From Individual to Community: Co-Creating Mental Health

May 15 @ 17 h 30 min - 19 h 00 min

ONLINE

This online event is a panel discussion hosting the following speakers from Romania: Victor Bohuș (Psychologist, Psychotherapist and member of The Economic and Social Council of Romania) from Choice (NGO focused on promoting evidence-based practices in Psychology and mental health), Emilia Grigorean (Psychologist, Psychotherapist and former EFPSA Advocacy Officer), Monica Bartucz (Psychologist, Psychotherapist and former postdoctoral WHO researcher), Cătălin Nedelcea (Vice-President of the Romanian Association of Psychologists), Otilia Calfa (InIm Institute), and Andrei Hodorog (About ADHD România founder and person with lived experience). Our aim is to call attention to and elaborate on the important role of systemic or social determinants of mental health, advocating for moving beyond individual responsibility only. We will examine the Mental Health Europe (MHE) model, discuss access to treatment, and share insights on the mental health landscape in Romania, including the need for comprehensive epidemiological studies. The main conclusions from The Economic and Social Council of Romania report on mental health will also be covered. The panel will highlight the principles of Community Psychology and public policy, showcasing lived experiences and co-creation as a pathway to innovation. We will also spotlight exemplary practices from national and international perspectives, seeking legislative frameworks that support community-centric policies. The session will culminate in a call to action, urging collective efforts to overcome co-creation barriers and outlining next steps for advancing mental health in Romania.
