In Spain, a movement is fighting the mental illness stigma

Mad Pride is a movement formed by users, ex-users and survivors of mental health services, who fight against stigmas, prejudices and stereotypes, demand social inclusion and equal rights for neurodivergent people.

The first protest took place in 1993 in Canada. In Spain, the first Crazy Pride Day was celebrated on May 20, in 2018. El Salto journalists went to one of their meetings and got an inside look at the lives and struggles of activists.
