Objectives of our association work
The aim of the association GLEICH UND ANDERS Schweiz is the promotion of mental health and is involved in the prevention, integration / inclusion and support of people with mental illness and their relatives.
image of man and attitude
Our association strives to provide a point of contact for people with mental illnesses.
Mental illness develops according to our understanding of various social, health and personal factors. Each user brings their own life story, from the very individual needs, problems and goals emerge.
We know that we work in a very private area. That’s why we value discretion, self-determination and recovery.
Ethics and environmental behavior
The optimal care of our members is a central concern to us. The goal is to keep the members as active and passive in the long term.
Enttabuization of mental illness
Although widespread, it does not openly talk about mental illness and stigmatizes those affected.
A healthy financial situation on our part and the securing of long-term revenues are at the forefront of our efforts. With financial planning we want to record and manage the future financial needs and income of our association.
In addition to the membership fees as main income, we want to open up new financial sources, among others in the field of patrons and donors.
Management and organization
We support and promote the idealism of honorary members on the board.
The executive board acts in the sense of a collegiate authority closed to the outside. He is responsible for the entire club’s affairs.
Information / communication
We are committed to open, objective and timely information and communication. We rely on proven and modern instruments such as:
- The club news
- Homepage: www.gleichundandersschweiz.ch

- Active media work e.g. SRF 1, newspapers, etc.
To achieve the club goals, we work closely with other clubs, organizations in our area and the authorities.
