NY BRYTER VI TYSTNADEN
Never Alone is a non-profit organization founded by Charlie Eriksson in 2013 to contribute to a more open dialogue on mental illness. The purpose is to spread information and knowledge to break the silence and all taboos. Everyone can suffer – either you or someone close to you.
Never Alone’s core message is that no one should have to suffer from mental illness in secret. Charlie is a great role model for many and has managed to put words on something as taboo as mental illness. Never Alone’s Facebook page has become a meeting place for sufferers and their relatives. Here, hundreds of thousands of people share their advice and experiences, every week.
Nobody should have to suffer from mental illness in secret.
