The Psychiatrist Who Brings Humor to Mental Health

Dr. Caroline Depuydt delivers her humorous and practical tips for starting the school year stress-free

As a psychiatrist at Fond’Roy, Dr. Caroline Depuydt tackles the challenging task of caring for individuals who pose a danger to themselves or others. Beyond her demanding role, she is also an acclaimed writer and mental health advocate. With a following of 83,000 on TikTok and regular appearances on RTBF, Dr. Depuydt shares valuable insights on maintaining mental well-being. Her first book, "Bien dans ma tête grâce aux neuro-sciences", delves into neuroscience-based strategies for mental health.

Her latest book,"J’arrête d’en faire trop", examines the roots of perfectionism, impostor syndrome, and burnout. As September marks the beginning of the school year, it often brings added stress and anxiety. In this engaging talk, introduced by Béa Ercolini, Dr. Depuydt will offer practical, easy-to-adopt strategies to help you navigate the stresses of September with ease.

Join us for this unique opportunity to begin the autumn season on a positive note.

The conference will be followed by a book signing of “J’arrête d’en faire trop” by Dr. Caroline Depuydt (Kennes, 2023). A sale organised by UOPC bookshop.

Registration opens on July 31.
