For us, in the field of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, we want also to underline that:

  • Opportunities for training and getting a job are an important part of the path to recovery for many users.
  • Most people affected by mental condition are able to work if they receive training, support and opportunities.
  • Opportunities for training and getting a job are part of the bill of rights supported by the UN Convention of Rights of People with Disabilities.

  • Moreover, you can try involve the media in your city-country, i.e. writing an article to a newspaper. The toolkit provides all necessary evidence and rationale as to make this easy.
  • A more ambiguos endeavor can be to organize a special meeting in your city around this.
