Ambassador Nabila Makram expressed her pleasure to be cooperating with Alexandria University in spreading awareness of mental health, supporting mental patients and their families, providing ways to treat them, and combating discrimination and bullying against mental patients. She stressed that support for patients should be in society in general and at the university level in particular, due to the disorders students may be exposed to, and pressures resulting from the sudden change in the surrounding environment from the school stage to the university stage, the pressures of moving to other governorates for study, the academic challenges, and the inability to express pent-up feelings. She said that mental illness may lead to suicide attempts, and therefore the community must support, relieve pain, and provide the surrounding environment that understands the suffering of people with mental illness, and finds a solution to their problems. She referred to the role of the university in providing studies and research on psychological conditions in light of the changes that occurred in the Egyptian society.
