Conference hosts

ONE OF US - the national Danish antistigma campaign & World Psychiatric Association's Stigma Section

ONE OF US has happily accepted the invitation from the World Psychiatric Association's Stigma Section to co-host the 8th International Together against Stigma conference.

The vision of ONE OF US is to improve life for all by promoting inclusion and combatting discrimination connected to mental illness in Denmark. In the campaign, we express it in the following words: No more silence, doubt and taboo about mental illness.

Specifically, the campaign vision is to create a better life for all by promoting inclusion and combating discrimination connected to mental illness. The mission is to increase knowledge of life with a mental illness; lessen the distance that leads to stigmatisation, prejudice and social exclusion; create a better understanding of mental illness in schools, in the workplace and everywhere else where lives are led.
 
ONE OF US was launched in 2011 and is set to continue work on a national level and targeted regional and local activities until the end of 2020. The campaign focuses on five main areas: service users and their relatives, youth (students in particular), the labor market, staff in health and social services, the media and the general population.

Ambassadors with lived experience of mental illness play a vital role for ONE OF US, within the organization and in campaign activities.
 
The partners behind ONE OF US
Behind the campaign is a strong network of public and private organisations in the mental health field: The Danish Health Authority, the philanthropic foundation TrygFonden, The Psychiatry Network (network of 14 service user and relatives' organisations), Danish Regions, the five regional governments, The Danish Mental Health Fund, The National Board of Social Services, Local Government Denmark.

Organisation
ONE OF US is managed nationally from the ONE OF US secretariat in Copenhagen. To ensure local commitment and support regional coordination groups have been formed.
