On a mission for mental health
Mental disorders have a strong impact on humanity and society, without sparing the younger generations. The lack of knowledge inhibits the emergence of ways in which to improve life trajectories. The mission of the Synapsy Centre for Neuroscience and Mental Health Research is to solve this through research, training and knowledge transfer.
