During the project we will have various internal meeting of project staff in order to share ideas on Awareness Raising Campaigns and outline possible problems.

In each country will be launched campaign to the local community for presenting the project and the future foundation of a sports associations whose members will be both athletes who are patients of the psychiatric community and young athletes of the local community. In project activities is also included an international sport event in Berlin, Germany, that will meet 8 athletes with psychiatric problems from the three partner countries.
