Aktionsbündnis Seelische Gesundheit is a nationwide initiative that was launched in 2006. Today, more than 130 member organizations have joined, mainly self-help associations of people affected by mental illness and their families. Numerous associations from the fields of psychiatry and health promotion are also involved and network for the common cause - the destigmatization of mental illness. In order to achieve this goal, the Aktionsbündnis, or Action Alliance, initiates projects and campaigns that are disseminated via the public and the member organizations. This way, all resources are bundled for maximum impact.
