We asked Section members to share their experiences and initiatives about the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2017.
Patrizia Zeppegno, Carla Gramaglia and the other Section members working in Novara, Italy, informed us about the initiative which will take place on December 1st at the University of Piemonte Orientale:
“We are organizing a cultural half-day at our university to talk about violence against women, which is widely acknowledged to be a risk factor for suicide in the female population. Following the method of the founder and master of our psychiatry school, Eugenio Torre, we will use movies, songs and books to think over and discuss about this topic. The day will be open to students, professors, clinicians, nurses and administrative staff”.
