TDZ 2019 velký

 

Největší destigmatizační událost v České republice Týdny pro duševní zdraví právě začala. Akce a aktivity pořádané v rámci Týdnů pro duševní zdraví se konají už 30 let v období od 10. září do 10. října. Celá kampaň vrcholí 10.10. na Mezinárodní den duševního zdraví. Fokus ČR byl v začátcích této rozsáhlé a pestré kampaně na podporu duševního zdraví a pro 30. ročník má každý Fokus opět připraveno mnoho akcí, besed, workshopů či happeningů. Přehledně jsou pozvánky na všechny akce uvedené na www.tdz.cz. Ke kampani jsou srdečně zvány i další organizace a neziskovky, které podporují duševní zdraví a upozorňují na stigmatizaci lidí se zkušeností s duševním onemocněním.  

Již druhým rokem spravujeme web kampaně společně s destigmatizační iniciativou Národního ústavu pro duševní zdraví NA ROVINU. Vizuály ke stažení a volnému použití k propagaci všech akcí TDZ pro rok 2019 jsou k dispozici v Knihovně našeho webu zde.

 

Historically the first sports games for people with mental health problems EVENTS were attended by 7 representatives rom Fokus Praha and Fokus Mladá Boleslav in Athens, Greece. From September 21 to 23, they competed in traditional disciplines such as football, tennis, volleyball, trekking, running, biking ... but they also tried fresh sports such as capoeira, firsbe, thai chi, TRX together with people from 14 other countries across Europe and from Turkey. All in a wonderful atmosphere that organizers from the Greek organization EDRA, together with all the participants, were able to create.

As an enthusiastic participant form Portugal says to the organizers: "Many congratulations, you have been able to materialize the dream of bringing together people and countries with common goals - to have more mental health, to have fun, to socialize, to be more active. This was a big step towards showing governments and policy makers that physical activity and sports are key factors for living and healthy and happy life."

Thank you to the athletes who represented us and look forward to the next event in 2019!

European awareness campaign  connecting sport & physical activity with mental health

LIFE IS LIKE A BIKE

  Life is Like a Bike video

«Life is like a bike. To keep your balance, you have to keep moving»: Albert Einstein combines in one sentence the laws of Physics with a life attitude. Another source of inspiration for the holistic approach of Mental Health through an active living, through the use of the positive effect that sport and physical exercise have on our daily mood and mental balance.

The "Life is Like a Bike" campaign is based on the results of the European survey among organizations and individuals about their experience and their opinions on the contribution of physical exercise and sport to mental health through specially designed questionnaires for sports organizations, mental health providers (recipients of their services or professionals) and the general population. The survey lasted two months (October-November 2017) and was completed with 2,656 participants from 12 European countries. 

Mental Health Europe together with the Tizard Centre- University of Kent released "Mapping and Understanding Exlusion in Europe" 2018 report - a unique study which looks at the state of mental health services across 35 Europe countries and provides exclusive data and testimonies about European mental health systems, ongoing human rights violations and the changes on the horizon.
