About 300,000 Danes are currently in treatment with 'happiness pills' against depression, and it is estimated that approx. every fifth Dane at some point in life is affected by an anxiety state. Nevertheless, there are still many taboos and myths about mental illness and psychiatric treatment. In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the cause of mental disorders, and the possibilities for treatment and prevention have become much better. The lectures go through a number of mental disorders and treatment methods.

CPH:SCIENCE Hunting for Hedonia​

How far should – and would – we go in modulating our emotions and personal characteristics? If pleasure is just the push of a button away, will you want to push it? These are just some of the questions being raised, when CPH:DOX launch this year’s CPH:SCIENCE programme with the World Premiere of ‘Hunting for Hedonia’ by Pernille Rose Grønkjær on March 22 at Bremen Teater.

After the film screening, Pernille Rose Grønkjær, science journalist Lone Frank and Philosopher Klemens Kappel and Professor Poul Videbech will twist and turn questions raised in the film.

‘Hunting for Hedonia’
‘Hunting for Hedonia’ contrasts history and present developments to examine and elucidate where Deep Brain Stimulation is going. Will this promising technology change psychiatry? And will the nifty electrodes move on from correcting abnormal activity in disease to perhaps ‘correcting’ unwanted but in fact normal activity? In other words: how far should – and would – we go in modulating our emotions and personal characteristics? If pleasure is just the push of a button away, will you want to push it?
