We at Irrsinnig Menschlich, known in English as Madly Human, have been motivating young people with our mental health prevention programmes for school, vocational training and higher education since our foundation in Leipzig, Germany, in 2000. With our work, our international non-profit organisation is contributing to the advancement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 4. We at Madly Human are responding to one of the greatest social challenges hardly anyone deals with in schools, vocational training and higher education although it overburdens families and leads to personal misery and massive social costs. Our core competence is to easily verbalise mental health issues and help young people to recognise issues earlier, not to hide themselves and accept help. The Social Challenge: about 75% of all mental health issues start during childhood and adolescence yet often years pass until those affected look for help and find it. The biggest barrier is the fear of being stigmatised because of mental health problems. Despite continuous improvement in treatment options, stigma is one of the biggest obstacles worldwide to ensuring that people seek help early. The effects of poverty, armed conflicts and migration as well as the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate crisis are worsening this issue.
