Mental Health in Romania

Please note that this is a legacy project that we are no longer active with. We are leaving it online for the record

Estuar is the leading mental health charity in Romania.

It focuses on provided sheltered housing and day care for the mentally ill.

They are a significant lobbying influence for the rights of those with mental illness or disability.

They run five drop in Day Centres, and provide supported living allowing twelve adults with severe disability to lead independent lives. These people would otherwise be alone and destitute on the streets of Bucharest.

Estuar also run five arts and crafts work shops and regional advocacy and support services.

We help them in various ways, particuarly with a contribution to their core running costs and sponsoring of staff.

The "Cooking Time Project" at Estuar's Day Centre provides a hot meal twice a week for 45 of the centre's users with mental health problems or mental disabilty.

The beneficiaries are closely involved in the preparation and cooking and so learn new skills and to work together in a team as well as benefiting from a nutritious and sociable occasion."
