"Calladita you are NOT prettier"

They tell you to fight, what do you have to demonstrate, you have to be more, a fit woman, let it work, take care of your family and have time to always be perfect.

Perfect.

It would be perfect if we did not have to constantly demonstrate that we are good professionals, good people, good daughters, good sisters, aunts, nieces, that we are women.

Woman.

Always in the background. Always behind. Without making much noise. Without noise, but not without moving. Because even in the shadows we have managed to reach very high peaks. We are who we are for those who in the past fought for our place in society. Because they didn't shut up. Because they couldn't silence their voices.

Because there is no one to stop this scream.

no, Quiet you are NOT prettier.
You are beautiful when you fight,
When you fight for yours,
When you don't shut up
And your words bites,
When you open your mouth
And everything burns around you.

no, Quiet you are NOT prettier,
But a little bit more dead,
And if I know something about you
I have not seen anyone,
Never,
With so much desire to live.
Screaming.

Arde - Miguel Gane.

El pasado mes de noviembre el Social Integration Center (CIS) de FEAFES Cáceres cumplió 20 años de trayectoria por la ciudad cacereña, generando y aportando un aprendizaje que facilite, a todas las personas que allí acuden, una integración óptima en la Sociedad.

Social Integration Center

En sus comienzos el CIS se llamaba Club de Ocio, fue el primer recurso social especializado en Mental health dentro de la Comunidad Autónoma de Estremadura. In 1999 comenzó su gestión con nuestra asociación (por aquel entonces llamada APAFENES). El objetivo principal del Centro de Ocio era generar un espacio agradable y abierto, donde poder proporcionar a las personas una alternativa de ocio productivo y una planificación adecuada del tiempo libre. Después de 10 años de andadura los profesionales del Club de Ocio empezaron a detectar una serie de necesidades que no se podían cubrir. Los profesionales detectaron que las demandas de las personas que asistían al centro no estaban tan relacionadas con el Ocio, sino más bien, en necesidades basadas en Social skills y en la interacción con los demás. A partir de aquí se genera el primer Centro de Integración Social en Extremadura.

Los organizadores del 20 anniversary queríamos celebrar este cumpleaños de la mejor manera posible y sobre todo que fuera de todos y para todos, como desde siempre ha sido el camino del CIS. Para ellos creamos un lema promocional para las jornadas: “Vente mueve tu Mente”. Después de ello llegamos a la conclusión de dividir la jornada en dos partes; la primera, llamada “jornada de barreras invisibles” donde invitamos a representantes de diferentes Asociaciones de Cáceres que, a través de una mesa redonda, expusimos los falsos mitos y prejuicios relacionados con las personas con Diversidad. Pudimos contar con la participación de la Association of the Deaf, Divertea, Cocemfe Y Mental Health FEAFES Cáceres.

Then, después de estas ponencias contamos con la colaboración de algunas de las personas que forman parte del Social Integration Center, donde hablaron sobre la evolución que ha tenido el CIS a lo largo de estos 20 years. Al finalizar el acto, el Centro de Integración Social quiso reconocer las colaboraciones de algunas personas y entidades durante estos años, Thus, se le entregaron unos obsequios realizados por los compañeros de la “Centrifuge Ideas” (FEAFES Cáceres).

Pero este cumpleaños no quedó aquí; ciñéndonos al lema que se dio a las jornadas (“Vente mueve tu Mente”) quisimos que el día finalizara con una convivencia a través del movimiento. Desplazándonos desde la Sala Clavellinas hasta el Centro Cívico de la Mejostilla contamos con la participación de diferentes profesionales de la danza y el baile impartiendo cada uno de ellos un taller, los cuales fueron los siguientes: taller de Flamenco gracias a la Escuela de Baile “Mara Palacios”; taller de Folklore impartido por la Asociación Cacereña de Folklore “El Redoble”; taller de Danza Urbana por Ana Bravo García y terminamos con el taller de Bachata impartido M.ª José Morano.

Nervios, incertidumbre, noches sin poder pegar ojo, mucho tiempo y esfuerzo para que todo saliera de la mejor manera posible ese día. Las personas que lo vivimos lo disfrutamos desde el principio hasta el final. Era también nuestro cumpleaños.

Since FEAFES Cáceres deseamos que, dentro de otros 10 years, The CIS siga con su andadura, ayudando y mejorando la calidad de vida de todas las personas que nos necesiten.

September arrives and from Mental Health FEAFES Cáceres We continue making people aware that there is no health without mental health, This month we'll talk about the importance of family in Mental Health.

We have often heard how important the family for each of us, almost always we take important decisions based on the concept of family, as this concept we have learned since we were kids, girls and we built throughout life.

There are critical moments for the family, for example, the separation of a couple who, as founders of this by separating can leave children feeling that everything is over and they run grave dangers because their parents are no longer together.

This detail gives us a clear example of how we tend to distort the real importance of family in our lives, a family is not based on a home "home" with all its members within, a family is much more than that, the role it plays in society and for each one of us is fundamental because it is the natural and appropriate environment in which we constantly develop as individuals.

The family meets three basic functions for the healthy development of each of its members: protection, providing care and affection.

Despite cultural changes, social and information revolution we have experienced in recent times, the family remains the most important for proper mental health of people.

Facebook, Twiter, Youtube and other interactive media have failed to replace a warm embrace, a pleasant conversation or parental guidance and family goal setting.

The joy of sharing good and bad times at home is something we are leaving aside lately, desconectándonos of our loved ones. This estrangement has several explanations, begins with the terrible traffic that exists in different cities, by excessive working hours, study days, etc.

Going turning away from our family, we become prone to illness or difficulties in our mental health. The importance of family is something timeless and will be the best remedy for problems.

SO THAT, Return home, FOR FAMILY MEMBERS VISIT THESE BONDS MAY NOT BE REPLACED BY MATERIAL THINGS.

The welfare of the elderly is our commitment and, Thus, we want to present all findings about eldercare so they can enjoy a better life in its final stage, both mentally and physically.

Company that animals bring people around him is no secret, but the truth is that the benefits provided by animals to people and, more especially, the elderly are numerous and relevant. We need to translate these benefits because they can be helpful for older people throughout the world and for some users of our family locator.

The therapeutic power of the animals can be made visible in different scenarios. The first is to have an animal at home as a dog or a cat because his presence alone brings many benefits in people. It is shown that with your company, interact with them, care for or just perceive you can reach reduce stress due to the production of endorphins in the central nervous system is stimulated, increasing the sense of peace and tranquility. In fact, the Viladecans Hospital says this theory has since conducted a study in which the results highlight a 60% homes with pets have a mood and health more favorable, compared to those without animals live.

On the other hand, the second stage of the healing power of animals shown in Animal Assisted Interventions Company (IAA) Animal-assisted therapy or (TAA) which aim to improve the quality of life and promote the health of people with special needs through participation pet. this therapy, also called Zooterapia, It is to encourage and motivate people to evolve in areas such as communication, Social, affective, cognitive physics. Animals, which they are usually dogs and, in some case, Horses must meet a number of requirements for therapy work.

These therapies are especially focused on people with illnesses such as depression, anxiety and sleep disorders, Besides being a good tool to reduce tensions and to help people suffering from heart disease, Asthma and chronic pain. We see that although elderly people are not being addressed exclusively, If that They have numerous benefits for this segment of the population because they help alleviate common health problems in older people. Georgia State University and Idaho State University have conducted studies that claim the benefits of therapy pets and tested, in this way, its reliability.

In Spain are already various hospitals and foundations that implement the use of animal-assisted therapies, always complementing the existing therapeutic process previously. The program of animal assisted therapy developed by the Mental Health Unit of the Hospital of Torrejon De Ardoz (Madrid), in collaboration with the Yaracan Association he has presented important findings like pet therapy applied to patients with involutional depression for six months reduces drug treatment in 60 % from the patients. Hospitals in different Spanish territory the presence of animals is also used to break the monotony of hospital admission and increase, in this way, positive emotions patients to feel safer, excited, happy. These visits reflected the affective-emotional bond that is created between patient and magical animal is so intense that influences the patient's stay is less hard and let off.

Ultimately we all benefit, besides the incredible love and companionship, it can bring an animal to the care of people and, more especially, people with health problems and older, something that seems crucial and highly recommended for maintaining good health or better.

Continue our 8 Mental Health Challenges, Augusts this month, we talk about animals and their protection and prevention factor in mental health, Numerous studies point to the benefits that pets have on the mental health of people. Recently, a study was able to show as holding a dog or cat, or hamster, among others, brought on mental health benefits long term.

The researchers found that pets helped their owners to better manage their feelings and provided a powerful distraction from stress.

Some pets also proved useful in strengthening physical activity, like walking the dog, but also they allow them to socialize and interact with other pet owners.

so, researchers recommend strongly “these animals are considered as support in the treatment of mental health disorders“, for example, in the case of a depression.

Likewise, different studies are also pronounced on the benefits that pets have on the mental health of people.
