SIND in a few lines?
Established in 1960, SIND (the Danish Association for Mental Health) was the first organisation in Denmark to advocate understanding and tolerance of people living with mental ill health and their families.
Today, many Danish organisations focus on mental health. However SIND remains one of the number one references regarding mental health for many Danes. Despite a small headquarter of 11 employees, SIND was in 2016 the most quoted mental health organisation in the media. In a 2017 analysis led by a recognised Danish political media – SIND was considered the most influential organisation in this area.
Hundreds of volunteers are engaged in SIND’s activities everyday. At the heart of SIND’s culture and activities is the belief that all Danes with all background, experiences, and diagnoses should and can join forces to create results: Most of our volunteers are people who have personal experience of mental ill health and their relatives.
