GIMATA: Understanding Mental Health and Promoting Mental Wellness

Oras na para MAG-GIMATA.

Know what is Mental Health and Mental Wellness.

Join us this October 3, 1:00-5:00pm at the Arrupe Convention Hall for a Learning Session on “GIMATA: Understanding Mental Health and Promoting Mental Wellness.”

Through this activity, we envision that our participants will be able to: (1) understand what is mental health; (2) recognize the importance of mental health awareness/education in schools; (3) identify common mental health issues amongst adolescents and young adults; (4) determine effective ways on how to handle these mental health concerns in school; and, (5) cite practical ways on how to promote/enhance mental health/wellness.

For this activity, our invited Main Resource Speaker is Dr. Robert Gerard O. Kelemen. Dr. Kelemen is a licensed Psychiatrist. He is currently a consultant at Mariveles Mental Hospital in Bataan and other hospitals. Dr. Kelemen received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from the Ateneo de Naga University. He completed his degree in Medicine from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay (UERM), and underwent residency training in Psychiatry at the Philippine General Hospital of the University of the Philippines in Manila (UP PGH).

Limited slots available. Register now at the College Guidance Center, 2nd Floor, Left Wing of the Administration Building. Interested participants will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.
