Romania: I Got Better – Mental Health Recovery Stories

The proximal scope of the project is to empower individuals with mental illness to speak out about their illness. The distal scope of the project is to reduce mental illness stigma in the general public. To meet these aims, we propose to train five individuals with mental illness, proficient in computer and internet usage, to generate original and search engine-optimized content for a blog that will insightful present the individuals behind the derogatory labels and their recovery stories.

    I want to congratulate you for this idea, I think that it would make a very good project and it would help to reduce stigma, not only in the general population, but as well as among those who suffer or have experienced a mental illness…because,as I often have realised, people who have a mental health problem are ashamed and find it difficult to reach out for specialised help.This project could help them feel safer and know that it’s ok and it doesn’t mean they are less of a person.
