Susret in a few lines?
If you are placed in a mental health institution or hospital, having a home of your own, belongings, or even a private room can seem like a distant dream. It can feel like being labelled as a person with mental health problems is the end of the road when it comes to living in the community.
The Association for Psychosocial Support – ‘Susret’ (which means encounter in Croatian) – is a small not-for-profit organisation which was established in Zagreb, Croatia, in 2006. We help people with mental health difficulties to live in the community again. In fact, we pioneered this approach in Croatia – when Susret opened there were no social services for mental health available in the community at all!
