What is WHY NOT? FOUNDATION ?

A small foundation that was born as a big project: BRINGING HAPPINESS TO THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESSES AND THEIR FAMILIES.

We started on our path in June 2010, with the aim of helping not in healthcare but in provisions for leisure and free time.  IMPROVE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.

Psychology scares us.  It is a field we know little about. As it scares us, it keeps us at a distance. And being far from it, we do not know if they need something, what they need, how they need it. We have got closer; we have asked. THEY NEED SO MUCH! We want to invest our help here. Searching for projects and proposals that let these people and their families live healthy moments, happy moments. Regrettably, people who suffer from a mental illness continue to be STIGMATISED. Throughout their lives they have suffered numerous rejections, both from their circle of friends and from society in general. They have been insulted, labelled and treated like crazy people. Ultimately, DEHUMANISED. With each project or activity offered to them, they are helped to find MOTIVATION, to RECOVER THE HOPE that many of them have lost, wrapped up in their symptoms, treatments, admissions and relapses. It helps them to discover all the resources they have and that they have been burying, forgetting or simply did not know they had. One of the most common characteristics of these conditions is SOCIAL ISOLATION. They tend to become introverted and to feel that this is the only way they are protected from the world. They don’t think that they are capable of doing something different and above all, they ask themselves, “What for?” It is then that this project MAKES SENSE.

These people’s quality of life is the FORGOTTEN side. WHY NOT? wants to make its contribution to give this the importance it should have.

You can help or you can ask for our help. Why not?
