APNS is pleased to announce its free public information sessions to celebrate Psychology Month. The Poster lists all the events by date.

We are kicking off Psychology Month 2020 with a screening of the film A Beautiful Mind at the Halifax Central Library, O’Regan Hall on Sunday, February 2 at 1 pm. Admission is free. Immediately following the screening, we will have a group discussion led by Dr Jo Durup, R.Psych. to discuss mental health issues that are dealt with in the film, focusing on schizophrenia and delusional episodes.

Although February is Psychology Month, this year our Psychology Talks have expanded into March and April. APNS is partnering with community Libraries across Nova Scotia to offer these free information sessions on important mental health topics.

Our goal with Psychology Talks is to raise awareness of the role psychology plays in our lives and in our communities. The presentations will inform the public about psychology-related topics and to increase awareness of the services psychologists provide.

This year’s topics include: Parenting issues, such as children or teens with anxiety or ADHD. Other topics aimed at adults include mindfulness, Borderline Personality Disorder, couples’ issues and resiliency.
