We are inviting you to the second lecture within the project “Beyond exclusion – effective rights for mental health patients” supported by the European Union through EU Delegation in Montenegro and Kotor Municipality, implemented by the Human Rights Action (HRA), Center for Women and Peace Education – ANIMA and the Mental Disability Advocacy Center (MDAC). The aim of these lectures is to raise awareness on the rights and needs of persons with mental disabilities, including their reintegration into society.
Three lectures are planned within the Special Psychiatric Hospital in Kotor. The lectures are intended both for the public and employees of the BPS Kotor, as a place of encounter and exchange of knowledge and experiences with lectures from the country and region, which would open a range of topics of importance to the treatment and rights of persons with mental illness. Last week, Lidija Vasiljević, Ph.D., psychologist, psychotherapist and educator of psychodrama, held the first lecture last week about stigmatization of people with mental disabilities.
The second lecture will be given by Lepa Mladjenović, psychologist and activist from Belgrade, entitled Anti-psychiatry movement and institutionalization, on Friday 25 November at 5p.m., in the hall of the Educational Center within the SPB Kotor.
We hope that you will recognize the importance of these issues for our local community and society as a whole and help us eradicate stigma and discrimination with progressive and humane approach to these important issues.
