It's about raising awareness of the individual who's trying to do it here. There is a need for scientific guidance on how to communicate in solving the problems that have to do with peace in the family. This is the career and experience of Sir Nevzat at Uskudar University, which is indisputable. In the same way, the success of NPISTANBUL Brain Hospital is evident. In cooperation with them, when families apply online, i.e. in a virtual environment, problems and determinations related to them are examined within a certain template, and education studies are continuing in a specific procedure-related to those who agree. The first initial demo of the project was made. It is a great pleasure to express that there are too many pros, cons seen. Now, as governor of Istanbul, we want to bring this project to larger segments. That's our main goal. I hope that this effort will give a good result,

I would like to thank Uskudar University in person and NPISTANBUL Brain Hospital in the person of Mr. Firat. I say the peace and happiness of our families will be forever!”

With the support of the governor's office, we will begin the second stage of studies in 4 districts. It is our primary duty to work for families to be happy and good human-raising nests.

This is a six-month project. We want to touch families on this project. More important than being useful to families who have come to divorce, especially in terms of preventive mental health, is to teach people about family maturity. The magic word for family is collaboration. We work on teaching cooperation between women, men, and children, problem-solving skills in these subjects. We have made this official protocol here with the advice of our governor and we will do so within a period of 6 months. We think of it as a project that will benefit families and future generations.”

Underlining that the support of local governments is very valuable and important in the project, Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan said; “It is very important to cooperate with the sub-governorships in order to reach the real needy people and they benefit from this project. Uskudar, Pendik, Eyupsultan, and Gaziosmanpasha District Governorships will take place in our project as pilot districts within the scope of our cooperation with the governorship. It is necessary to identify the families who really need it. We aim to solve a child's problem, to touch their soul, or serve to resolve the conflict and conflict between parents. We have a team working in these areas. Our professors who do couple therapy and have experience in the family will devote their savings to this project.”

Firat Tarhan: "I hope the project will reach many people and bring peace to homes"

NPİSTANBUL Brain Hospital Board Member Firat Tarhan stated that with the support of Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya and the deputy governor, works on the project have started in four districts in Istanbul and said, "I hope it will reach more people and it will be useful.
