    OVERCOMING BARRIERS IN MINDS AND SOCIETY

    8th International Together Against Stigma Conference

    Copenhagen, Øksnehallen September 21st, 2017

    Bo Rasmussen – participant of the bicycle run Anja Kammacher – project manager

  • A physical movement against stigma

    “The fact that people with a mental illness will get the idea of changing their lives by starting a bike ride, train up to this and define a goal to bike from Vestegnen [east of Denmark] to Skagen [north of Denmark]…

    There would be a lot of healthy persons who would find that prohibitive to set a goal like this. For the fund, that was worth to support”

    (Steffen Nørgaard, Director, The Fund of Spar Nord)
