Brief Biography: 

I am a Portuguese psychiatrist but living and working in Barcelona (Spain). I have recently finished my trainee and I am now working in a community setting as a Consultant and in a ward for children and adolescents with acute mental health issues. Complementing my formation, I have experience in general psychiatry research (schizophrenia, unipolar and bipolar disorders, substance misuse) and Systemic Therapy (2 years of training).

I have interest in Global Health and, as a psychiatrist, in Global Mental Health. Even without much practical experience in this field, I would like to train and work in Global Mental Health. I have completed this year the Kings College Summer Course in Global Mental Health. I have interests in mental health programs and research (epidemiological and programs implementation), stigma, human rights violations, treatment gap and working directly with patients in the field.
