We want to change social awareness. We promote mental diversity and new models of psychosocial healthcare within the community.

ANNOUNCEMENT – New project

Active Citizens Fund

In May 2020, we started implementing the ad hoc action project called "Advocacy and empowerment of people with mental health difficulties, mapping the needs and developing services in the newly created circumstances of the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Zagreb earthquake".

The aim of the project is to raise the level of public awareness, to empower people with mental health difficulties and to sensitize and encourage public policy makers to take appropriate measures in response to current crisis. The target groups are CSOs, public policy makers, the media, people with mental health difficulties and their loved ones, experts in the field of mental health and the general public.


ON GOING - Peer Support Group

Experts by experience (a Peer Support Group)

The group of Mutual Psychic Support "Experts by experience" is held every Monday from 7 pm to 9 pm in the premises of the Prečko Cultural Center.

Mutual assistance means listening to and helping each other as a community of Equals. No one in the group is above anyone. No paid professionals or staff who guides us and define the meetings.


HIGHLIGHTED - Peer Support Group

From a Fellow Sufferer to a Fellow Traveller (a Peer Support Group)

A peer support group "From  a Fellow Sufferer to a Fellow Traveler" has been held continuously the third year in a row now, every Monday from 7 pm to 9 pm in the premises of the Prečko Cultural Center.

As people with experience of mental suffering labeled as "mental illness" are experts by experience, so their loved ones are the experts by experience of fellow suffering.
