AAU Strengthens the Role of Psychologist in Society
Students of the Applied Psychology Program at Al Ain University, Abu Dhabi Campus have launched a community initiative titled “Awareness of the Role of Psychologist in the Workplace” in conjunction with World Mental Health Day.
The campaign was launched in October and lasted for two months during which students visited a number of ministries, governmental and private institutions and centers in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The initiative has received positive results on aspects such as; the adoption of some institutions, the idea of establishing a section for psychological counseling, and introducing lectures on mental health. The visits also reinforced joint cooperation with the Department of Social Support Centers to train the Al Ain University students and open their doors for future work.
This initiative aims to enhance communication with the local community by employing the educational, cultural and social aspects by encouraging internal and external activities that highlight the university positively in front of the community.
