Title TEDxTalk: Is there a stitch loose?
From our own experience, we know how hard it is to talk about an issue with as many taboos as mental health and to create some form of understanding. We address the subject with passion, humor and engage people into conversation about things they normally don’t talk about. Psychological problems: what does that mean to you? Add quality to your life: How do you do that? With the help of our game “A stich loose” we will try to give you an insight into the universe of someone with mental health issues, make it debatable and tackle misconceptions.
