A group of students from Zarqa University,
under the supervision of Dr. Malek Tarifi from the Faculty of Science,
participated in a silent play about mental illness, which was presented at Al-Ahliyya Amman University in cooperation
with the Dopamine Association for Mental Health Awareness.
The students acted in a play entitled
"You are my case" that explained the meaning of mental illness, and
how a person with mental illness can return to normal life if they commit
themselves to the treatment as prescribed by
clinical psychological therapists..
The play aims to raise awareness of the
symptoms of mental disorders, and that
mental illness should not be taken as a stigma but an illness like any physical
one and can be cured. It called upon the society to end their view of the patient as mentally stigmatized..
This participation is part of the
University's policy and philosophy in contributing to community interests,
through the integration of students in volunteer work for the benefit of the university ,students and the community
