Mental health support

mental health

The University of Messina has offered free mental support services to students, staff and the local community, through the creation of a special unit: “CERIP - Center for Research and Intervention in Psychology”. The center offers psychological support to students in the process of identifying their strengths and weaknesses, to strengthen their cognitive, emotional, relational and behavioral resources, in order to prevent and/or reduce the risk of the onset of uncomfortable conditions and mental disease. The main objective of CERIP is to promote the psychological well-being of students and encourage their personal and cultural growth. Free psychological and psychiatric consultations and interviews were also provided during the Open day on mental health promoted by the "Onda" foundation (National Observatory on women's and gender health) and held at the AOU "G. Martino” in Messina on 10 October 2022.
