Rather than concentrating on the people affected by the mental disorder, this time around, the tenth initiative stresses the importance of the people near the affected and the role they can take in order to help.
“The aim of this action is to stress the importance of the families and other closed persons to the depressed person because many persons with depression are feeling alone,” said Dr. Sławomir Murawiec, a psychiatrist at the DIALOG Therapy Centre in Warsaw.
