Discover the micro-theater project #PodríaSerYo – #BHHMembersInitiatives

Angelini Pharma promotes the micro-theater project #PodríaSerYo to raise awareness among young people about the importance of monitoring and taking care of their mental health.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health has been significantly compromised and has gained visibility in social and healthcare debates. In this context, Angelini Pharma, firmly committed to brain health, has launched the micro-theater project #PodríaSerYo, aiming to break taboos around mental health and raise awareness about the need to remain vigilant for any signs or symptoms of potential brain health disorders.

#PodríaSerYo, is carried out in collaboration with a professional theater company and supported by a Scientific Committee composed of two psychiatrists, Dr. Carles Masip, a psychiatrist at BHH partner Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, and Dr. Sandra Rubio, a psychiatrist at the Transition Unit of CSM Puente de Vallecas, in collaboration with Angelini Pharma.

The school María Auxiliadora – Salesianas Villaamil in Madrid has participated in the initiative by hosting a pilot of the theatrical performances. These performances, held in different spaces within the school, depicted the stories of five individuals living with mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety, cannabis-induced psychosis, eating disorders, bullying, and self-harm.

As a closing event, a debate was held with the participation of Dr. Carles Masip, Dr. Inmaculada Palanca (Head of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda University Hospital in Madrid), and the school students. The objective of the debate was to provide a space for reflection and sharing of observations from the performances, as well as to offer tools to help in any risky situations.

Angelini Pharma aims to bring the project to other educational institutions in the coming months.
