Ateneans' Book on Mental Health Wins in Bangkok

The Mind Movement, a project on mental health created by Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) students, won 2nd place in the Activities Fair of the Asia Pacific Regional Meeting (APRM) 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand.

ASMPH students, through SCOPE, the school’s official student publication, partnered with the Asian Medical Students’ Association Philippines (AMSA) for the initiative. It was part of The Mind Movement project aimed at promoting awareness on mental health and illness.  SCOPE  teamed up with AMSA- Standing Committee on Public Health  to make the book.

Published in April 2016, the Mind Movement book  addressed issues, policies, health promotion and education affecting mental health. It features articles, poems, and visual arts made by ASMPH students. Medical students from  AMSA-affiliated Philippine medical schools also wrote for the project.

APRM’s Activities Fair showcased the various activities (posters, presentations, photographs, statistics, etc.) made by members of the International Federation of Medical Students Associations.

APRM 2016 was held from June 2-4, 2016.
