Breaking Barriers: The Silent Struggle of Men with Mental Health Problems


30 May 2024


ISPUP gallery



Embark on a visual journey that encourages reflection on inclusivity and the essence of community spirit. Through a series of compelling photographs taken in a social center for men without social support, we invite you to bear witness to the touching realities of exclusion experienced by individuals struggling with mental health challenges.

This exhibition serves as a poignant reminder to our collective consciousness of the imperative for integration and empathy within our society. As Portugal celebrates 50 years of democracy, let us reflect together on our commitment to dismantling barriers and fostering a community where every individual’s voice is heard and valued.

Join us in breaking the silence surrounding mental health issues and paving the way for a more inclusive and compassionate future.

The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Friday, between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm, depending on the gallery availability, until May 30.

This is an activity organized within the scope of European Public Health Week, under the theme “Mental health: People at the center”.
