This is Michihiko Nakamura, the curator of Chambers of Rakkoring. First of all, I would like to introduce myself as the curator. I was born and raised in Midori-machi, (Minami-ku) Hiroshima City. After graduating from Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Assistant in the Department of Psychiatry; Visiting Researcher at the Clark Institute of Psychiatry, University of Toronto; Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry, Shiga University of Medical Science; Deputy Councilor Researcher at the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Psychiatry; Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine; Director of Kyoto Prefectural Center of Mental Health and Welfare; Professor of Kyoto University of Education and Director of Health Care Center; Director of Nagaokakyo Ekimae Mental Clinic in Kyoto Prefecture; the director of mental clinic Rakkoring for children and women in my hometown. My research areas included psychophysiology related to cognitive function, psychosomatic medicine centered on eating disorders, somnology focusing on sleep apnea, psychiatric diagnostics in relation with DSM and ICD, animal learning behavior using electrophysiological methods, treatment of school attending difficulty such as school refusal and developmental disorders, development of psychoeducational programs enlightening anger management, suicide prevention, and friendship making for children. I would like to make every effort to convey these research and clinical experiences to everyone in more understandable words for anyone. With this in mind, I decided to open "Chambers of Rakkoring".
I opened Mental Clinic Rakkoring and have been engaged in psychiatric care for almost 11 years, but I closed in November 2022. This year, I was honored to receive the Hiroshima City Public Health Project Merit Award. And in March 2023, we launched a website called "Chambers of Rakkoring". Chambers of Rakkoring has Counseling Room, Library Room, Music Room, Material Room, Study Room, and Lecture Room. The Counseling Room is a chamber where counseling and consultation are provided for people with mental problems. The Library Room exhibits novels and picture books created by the curator, so please feel free to browse them. The Music Room has music composed by the curator. Since it is an amateur's work, some people may feel that it is musically like, but if you are interested in, thinking that it is the curator's dissipation, please listen to it. The Material Room has questionnaires for checking mental health. If you are concerned about your mental health, you can use any questionnaires in the room when necessary, but these sheets are prepared for those who visited the counseling room. The Study Room plans to make it possible to view the knowledge obtained by analyzing the data of medical treatment for more than 20 years, focusing on children with school attending difficulty. The last Lecture Room is exhibited as a YouTube video focusing on the themes that the curator has lectured for university students and citizen. Choose a video on your favorite theme and take a mini lecture. All small rooms are prepared for non-professionals.
